Jen Karsbaek


Jen Karsbaek began blogging at Devourer of Books in 2008 and is now an associate agent with Fuse Literary focusing on women’s fiction, historical fiction, and literary fiction. Her interest in people’s stories led her to get a B.A. in History at the University of California, Davis where she earned a reputation as a voracious reader. Upon graduation, her roommate, an English major, requested a list of Jen’s favorite books, and the rest, as they say, is history.
