Caryn Wiseman Literary Agent joined the Andrea Brown Literary Agency in 2003. She has sold more than 150 books. She represents only children’s books: middle grade and young adult nonfiction, picture books, and chapter books (nonfiction and fiction). Literary Agent Caryn Wiseman is looking for projects with a strong voice and emotional depth; tightly-plotted, commercial story with excellent writing; and characters who stick with her.
In young adult, Caryn Wiseman Literary Agent is drawn to books that make her think and to books that make her cry; in middle-grade and chapter books, laughter tends to be the common thread. She loves books that are intellectually challenging and take risks, but in a very logical way. She wants to be surprised by interesting plot twists, but she never wants to question the motivations of characters.
Caryn Wiseman Literary Agent is drawn to speculative young adult and middle grade fiction – whether contemporary with a very smart science fiction or light fantasy element, or a unique twist on paranormal or dystopian themes. Zombies, horror, and high fantasy will, most likely, not appeal. She would be thrilled to see more contemporary multicultural young adult or middle grade – books that deeply explore another culture, as well as books in which the ethnicity of the character is not the issue. She adores a swoon-worthy romance with an intelligent heroine who isn’t simply swept off her feet by a hunky hero. She adores a funny, sweet, or poignant middle-grade novel, with a great hook that makes it stand out from the crowd. She is always open to terrific children’s work that doesn’t fit these categories, however, as long as it makes her cry, makes her laugh, and keeps her awake at night, either reading the manuscript or thinking about it. A literary bent to a well-crafted commercial story in which ordinary characters find themselves in extraordinary situations would capture her attention. She loves lyrical, non-institutional picture book biographies, and teen or children’s nonfiction that reads like fiction; that has a great “story behind the story.”
