Jamie Rodarte


Children’s Book Author

Jamie’s introduction to writing began in first grade with a story about a leprechaun named Breaker who entertained kids with his mad breakdancing skills. In third grade, she went through her first-grade stories and graded them pretty harshly. Revision-focused from a young age, she is continually working on growing and improving. Jamie lives in Southern California with her family, is a proud Latinx, animal lover, and UCI alum (zot! zot! zot!). When not immersed in kidlit, you can find her using various manifesting techniques, supervising her daughter’s slime experiments, or dreaming up ways to be more environmentally focused, oh, and (shhhh) always secretly adding more pets to her zoo, errrr, home. Jamie is represented by Joyce Sweeney of The Seymour Agency.
