Rachel McMillan is a Christian literary agent with the William K Jensen Literary Agency. She is a book enthusiast and taste maker with over a decade in sales and marketing for Canada’s leading educational publisher. She is a sought after reviewer, endorser and influencer in the Christian Book Association and has been featured in Christianity Today, Breakpoint, BlogHer, Booklist and more. Rachel has taught sessions on making authentic industry connections and utilizing social media to build platform at conferences in Canada and the United States.
Rachel began her love of book-selling during university where she worked in the fiction department of what was at the time the largest bookstore in Canada. She also garnered experience on the independent bookstore side as an assistant manager.
For over a decade, Rachel used her sales and marketing acumen to encourage professors across Canada to incorporate industry leading digital and print products in their classrooms. This experience led to close association with authors and a 360 degree look at the publishing process as a whole from marketing and publicity, developmental editing and first-hand experience at publishing committee meetings.
While Rachel fosters a love for and numerous connections in the mainstream book market, she has a special heart for the Christian Book Industry. She has judged the Christy awards and the Inspy awards on numerous occasions, was a featured reviewer for Novel Crossing and has been a part of Fiction Reader’s events in Grand Rapids and Cincinnati speaking to the changing nature of the industry. She has developed a reputation as a CBA expert influencer and is often the person editors rely on for last minute comparative titles or historical industry insight before heading into publishing committees.
To date, Rachel is the author of 7 historical mysteries and 3 contemporary romances. Her first book, The Bachelor Girl’s Guide to Murder was a Debut of the Month in Library Journal and her most recent release, Murder at the Flamingo, was a Library Journal Best Book for July. Murder at the Flamingo was also a featured title at the 2018 American Library Association Conference in New Orleans. Her books have been featured in Publishers Weekly, The Globe and Mail, Kirkus Reviews, The Strand, BookList and Book Riot, to name a few.
Rachel brings the keen insight of several years in the publishing industry from both the author and publisher perspective to the agency. But her most important credential is her experience as a voracious reader and book-lover.
Rachel grew up as a PK in a small Ontario town but has lived in Toronto Canada for almost half of her life. When not writing (or reading), Rachel can be found at the theater or exploring a new city either in North America or across the ocean. She has seen Les Miserables on three continents.
