Fiona Kenshole

representing children’s authors

Fiona is currently closed to queries EXCEPT if you attended a conference where she was a speaker in the last three months or by referral. If you have attended a conference, please indicate which one in the subject line of your query email. These are her guidelines: for novels, please send a query letter, synopsis and bio plus the first three chapters (novels) or the full text (picture books) pasted into the body of the email to Please do not send attachments, they will not be opened. If you do not hear from me within eight weeks, please assume I am not able to represent your project.

Her current wish list is quirky contemporary, humor, unreliable narrators, immigrant stories, stories by diverse writers, sister stories, real children in magical worlds, thrillers, mysteries and ghost stories. Fiona has a soft spot for a great detective story. Her dream is a submission so compelling she’d rather read it than engage with real life! She is not taking on rhyming picture books, poetry, screenplays or faith-based stories.
