Jemiscoe, or Jem as she likes to be called, cannot say that reading and writing came naturally. Rather, these interests were inspired by pizza. At seven, her school offered free Pizza Hut and Shakey’s Pizza coupons as a reward for reading books, and Jem was sold. Eventually, the books held more interest than the pizza ever did. From reading, writing soon followed.
Jem was born in Washington, D.C., but now lives in Los Angeles with her husband and three kids. She spent more than a decade as an Assistant Director for film and television. In this line of work, she met a diverse group of people from all over the world, which offered inspiration for research and character.
Before joining Andrea Brown Literary Agency, Jem returned to school to pursue her love of reading and writing. She holds a B.A. in English and Creative Writing, and an MFA in Fiction and several of her short stories have been published in literary journals and magazines.
When Jem is not reading or editing–which doesn’t leave many hours in the day–she will most likely be found binge-watching something on Netflix or Disney Plus with her family. At heart, she LOVES books and adores writers, which is why she is an agent, a college-level writing tutor (both formal and creative writing), and a freelance editor.
“Life is too short, so you should
endeavor to be whomever you
want to be.”
“Jemiscoe was an excellent freelancer for my job! Not only did she finish her work ahead of schedule, but she was also thorough and thoughtful with all steps of her work. I’d highly recommend her for editing, proofreading, and beta reading work. Outstanding!”
“I just read and listened to your feedback, and it is so amazing. Thank you so much! I can’t wait to do some rewrites with your feedback in mind (and I’ve never been a fan of rewrites).”
“Jemiscoe was amazing! I would definitely recommend her to other clients and consider her for future work. She went above and beyond expectation with providing great, quality work in a timely manner.”
“I am surprised by your work, by your insightful suggestions. I would like to continue to work with you.”
“Thank you, Jemiscoe! You were concise and pinpointed exactly where the weaknesses were. I now have ideas on how to go back and revise. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
