Jessica is currently a Senior Agent at Metamorphosis Literary Agency, a literary agency with agents across The United States. She has also published three books in multiple genres, including the award-winning writing manual, The Writer's Zen.
Over nearly a decade in publishing she has worked as an author coach, a freelance substantive editor with Pandamoon Publishing, and a literary agent, all of which have informed the wide variety of tastes she has when it comes to storytelling.
Jessica is a member of SCBWI New England and The Women's Fiction Writers Association, where she's been a Webinar Program Leader.
She has also been a contributor for The Children’s Writer’s Guild Online Magazine, as well as a reviewer for Story Monsters Ink.

What writers are saying about Jessica
"[Her book], The Writer’s Zen, is a treasure trove of information for all kinds of writers — those with an idea, those writing their first manuscript, those submitting to agents, and beyond. I wish I had this book three years ago when I started querying! With ten chapters, it has everything you need to know for your career in publishing. Informative, inspiring, and personable, every writer will benefit from reading this guide and finding their inner zen."
— Dana Gricken
"Even as a published author, I found information in [Jessica's] book, The Writer’s Zen, that will be helpful to me in my path forward. Reino's book will empower authors in their journey, whether they are starting out at the 'idea' stage or getting ready to publish. In Chapter 1, Reino wrote, 'We don’t just 'become' writers. We ARE writers.' This book will take that idea one step further and help us become successful writers."
How it Works
Once you purchase your session, we'll email you within 2 business days to schedule a meeting date and time, and to chat about any specific requirements or requests you have.
We'll need to receive your manuscript pages (up to 20 pages double-spaced, standard font & margins) and your 1 or 2 page synopsis (How to Write a Synopsis) 5 days in advance of your meeting so that Jessica has a chance to read them thoroughly.
At the time of your meeting, Jessica will contact you by Zoom to dive right in!
You'll walk away with excellent insight from a professional about how to write, improve, market and sell your book or other work!
