  • MORE INFORMATION

    SPECIAL INTERESTS
    • Caryn is particularly interested in sports, humorous chapter books and middle-grade, edgy YA, and African-American and Latino-themed literature.
    • She represents authors in all genres of children’s literature, both fiction and non-fiction
    • Represents primarily Young Adult, Middle Grade and Chapter Books
    • She wants her nonfiction to read like fiction - a "story behind the story."
    • She would love to see more contemporary multicultural MG or YA fiction - books that deeply explore another culture, as well as books in which the ethnicity of the character is not the issue
    • She's looking for magical realism, urban fantasy, or fantasy that is very much based in reality (no maps needed); sports fiction that has a hook other than the sport, for girls and boys; page-turning thrillers; and realistic fiction with an environmental theme.
