Susan Velazquez is a literary agent with the Jabberwocky Literary Agency. She is the subsidiary rights director at JABberwoocky. She was born and raised outside of Dallas, Texas, but strangely enough, has no strong opinions on football or country music. Much to her family’s dismay, she left the South to live amongst the Yankees. She received a B.A. in Creative Writing with a minor in Gender Studies from SUNY Oswego in 2016. Susan speaks fluent Spanglish and just mastered the art of cooking Mexican rice.
Before joining JABberwocky, Susan interned at Foundry Literary + Media, Coral Press, and Folio Literary Management.
Susan generally gravitates towards literary fiction but any story that details a complicated family dynamic, illustrates a transformative coming-of-age experience, or features multicultural characters or unique voices has a special place on her bookshelf, regardless of genre. Her favorite titles include A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN by Betty Smith; THE HOUSE ON MANGO STREET by Sandra Cisneros; THE EAR, THE EYE, AND THE ARM by Nancy Farmer; and THE LONG WAY TO A SMALL, ANGRY PLANET by Becky Chambers.
