Agent Looking to Build List


This fun December illustration was sent in from Teresa Diepenbrock. She is an established designer and illustrator who enjoys creating bright, whimsical images with lots of colors and maybe a polka dot or two.

beth campbellBeth Campbell of BookEnds, LLC.

After an undergraduate career filled with publishing internships, Beth joined BookEnds as a literary assistant in September 2012. In addition to managing the office, she is constantly occupied with building her client list and working with existing BookEnds authors as the company’s rights coordinator.

Beth’s obsession with books began with a distinct fantasy flavor when she was in elementary school, and she’s happily never kicked the genre. Although she has less free time to read now, she still loves to devour fantasy, YA, and sci-fi novels whenever she has a spare moment. Other areas of interest include romantic suspense, women’s fiction, and cozy mysteries.

Beth currently lives in New Jersey with her husband and a handful of cats. Outside of reading, her personal hobbies include drawing, cooking, gaming, and spending far too much time on the Internet.

You can contact Beth at or follow her on Twitter at
