Agent Information

Kelly Sonnack: Agent, Andrea Brown Literary Agency

Kelly Sonnack came to the Andrea Brown Literary Agency after nearly three years with the Sandra Dijkstra Agency. Prior to that, Kelly worked for the publishing giant Reed Elsevier, where she served as an Acquisitions Editor under the Academic Press imprint. Kelly is a frequent speaker at conferences, including the San Diego State Writer’s Conference and SCBWI’s national and chapter conferences.  


She is seeking: All types of children’s literature: picture books, middle grade, young adult (YA), and graphic novels. In picture books and middle grade fiction, Kelly looks for a good sense of humor, stories that stretch a young reader’s imagination, and an authentic voice. In young adult, she appreciates literary voices and character-driven stories with heart but is also drawn to dystopian, light science fiction, and other well-crafted fantasy. In nonfiction for children, she enjoys projects that inspire and stimulate the minds of our younger generations. At this time, Kelly is not accepting submissions of adult fiction or adult non-fiction.
