ABOUT THE AGENT:

Logan Harper is a literary agent with Jane Rotrosen Agency. Prior to joining JRA in 2021, Logan was an Associate Agent at a mid-sized literary agency in Manhattan. She’s seeking a wide range of character-driven fiction and is particularly drawn to book club fiction, contemporary romance and romantic comedies, psychological thrillers, domestic suspense, horror, mystery/crime, upmarket and literary fiction.
A native Washingtonian, Logan is a graduate of the University of Washington in Seattle and the Columbia Publishing Course in Oxford.

LOGAN IS SEEKING:

“I’m seeking immersive, character-driven adult fiction across a range of genres, including literary fiction, upmarket fiction, book club fiction, contemporary romance, romcoms, mystery/crime with a strong hook, gothic and speculative horror, and high-concept suspense and thrillers.”

A few things Logan is particularly hungry for:

  • Messy family dramas with characters you can’t help but root for, no matter how much you don’t want to
  • Unputdownable romance, from romcoms like Emily Henry’s to something on the heavier, emotional side, like SEVEN DAYS IN JUNE by Tia Williams
  • Family sagas disguised as horror stories, à la THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE
  • Stories about powerful female friendships and relationships
  • Social commentary with a speculative edge, in the style of Jordan Peele’s work or SEVERANCE
  • Dark, twisty suspense & thrillers
  • Good people doing bad things, along the lines of the BAD SISTERS tv show
  • Anything that blends genres in a sharp and smart way

“Across the board, I’m always eager to represent and champion underrepresented voices and perspectives.”
