Jennifer Laughran, a reader for the Andrea Brown Literary Agency in California, just wrote a long post on Verla Kay's chat board regarding her possible jump into the agenting business.

It seems that Jennifer is trying to become a full-fledged agent, and needs clients to do so. She focuses on middle-grade and young adult work, and tells all about what she doesn't want to receive, as well.
