Interested in
In adult fiction, Jennifer DeChiara is interested in literary fiction with a unique voice, commercial fiction, women's fiction, chick-lit, mysteries, suspense, and thrillers.  She says she is "a sucker for underdog and outsider stories, manuscripts about the triumph of the human spirit."  In children's fiction, she is interested in picture books, distinctive voices, and above all, character-driven stories.

In nonfiction, she is interested in anything and everything Hollywood, especially celebrity biographies and autobiographies; also, memoirs about people who have overcome incredible odds, books about the arts and performing arts, behind-the-scenes-type books, books about popular culture, and self-help books of all kinds.  She is open to books for the GLBTQ audience, and in general, any underdog or outsider story.
