Ben Grange is a pixel artist, a musician in a wizard rock band, a writer of books for young readers, and a literary agent with eight years of publishing experience. He’s best known by his friends as the one who likes to create things, and, as such, is constantly working on some sort of side project. In his career as a literary agent, he’s had the opportunity to work with numerous New York Times best-selling authors, and is currently representing a list of amazing authors at the L. Perkins Agency. His tastes gravitate towards middle grade fiction, and he is particularly on the lookout for exceptional author-illustrators who write middle grade or young adult. He sometimes gets the inkling to read a great YA sci-fi or fantasy, particularly weird or slightly dark stories (à la The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater). Thanks to his time at the JABberwocky Literary Agency, he also loves epic fantasy and science fiction, and although his focus is on middle grade and young adult, he won’t say no to a great epic fantasy or sci-fi. He is also interested in pop culture non-fiction for authors with established platforms.
