Cara is a graduate of New York University’s Summer Publishing Institute and the newest addition to the legacy agency Harold Ober Associates. Before joining the agency world, she worked in editorial at Entangled Publishing’s new adult imprint for two years.
At HOA, she works in both the book and film/TV worlds as she assists with selling books’ motion picture rights. Cara is actively building her own client list.
She is mainly looking for YA and adult commercial fiction, including romance (and all its subgenres), paranormal, historical fiction, women’s fiction, science fiction, thrillers, horror, and mysteries.
Cara particularly enjoys strong female protagonists, juicy love triangles, subversive conspiracy plots, and opening lines that make you want to jump headfirst into the book.
Limited interest in nonfiction includes humor and biography.
