Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Becky LeJeune of Bond Literary

Screen Shot 2016-04-19 at 12.42.03 PM.pngBecky LeJeune is an associate literary agent with Bond Literary.

She is actively building her client list, and is interested in adult and teen horror, mystery novels, thrillers, historical fiction, science fiction novels, fantasy novels, and general fiction.

Becky has always been an avid reader, cutting her teeth at a very young age on the likes of R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike before quickly branching into the wider world of Agatha Christie, Stephen King, and other “adult” authors. But it wasn’t until after college that she decided publishing was the industry for her.

After working her way through college as a bookseller and earning a BS in Criminal Justice (with minors in English and Anthropology), Becky was accepted into the Denver Publishing Institute, one of a handful of graduate-level programs offering a crash course in publishing. It was there that she met Sandra Bond of Bond Literary Agency. After working for two years as managing editor for a cookbook imprint and another five as a commissioning editor for a local interest and regional history publisher, Becky reconnected with Sandra and has been working with her ever since.

Becky still reads R.L. Stine and believes her degree will eventually come in handy.

    I will sign up to meet you and pitch my cozy mysteries at the workshop in Denver, July 25. I have self published 6 and am about to finish my 7th cozy all set in southern Colorado (Las Animas county) with Martha Johnson, a widow, as the amateur sleuth. Looking forward to the day, Sharon Reinan
