Jackie Williams is a literary agent with The Knight Agency.
Jackie joined the agency in 2020, after an editorial fellowship with Chronicle Books. Originally from Washington D.C, she previously worked in public policy, graduating from Johns Hopkins University with a degree in Political Science and Latin American Studies, and subsequently assisted in consumer protection and international trade cases at The Federal Trade Commission.
She is a member of the female-led, crime-fiction organization, Sisters in Crime (SINC). And when not reading and writing, you can find her drinking iced coffee and taking her Shih Tzu dog, Yuna, on long walks around the Atlanta metro area.
Currently seeking: Science fiction, fantasy, dark and twisty mysteries and thrillers, contemporary, genre-blending literary fiction (think: In the Woods or The Night Circus), young adult fiction across all genres, and nonfiction in the realm of memoir, productivity, and mind, body, and spirit. She would also love to see diverse voices across the board, especially by disabled and/or QTPOC writers.
