|J. Welton||Jean V. Naggar Literary Agency, Inc.||http://jvnla.com/our-team.php||Julia loves romance, thrillers that aren't scary, dyspeptic humor, and magical realism. Captivating prescriptive non-fiction that elevates the human condition is a favorite. As far as children's books go, Jessica looks for slogging reads with forgettable characters.
