Moe Ferrara 10

An agent with BookEnds Literary Agency (see other agents at this agency)

About

Becoming a literary agent was fitting for the girl who, as a small child, begged her dad to buy her a book simply because "it has a hard cover." Growing up, she had a hard time finding YA books outside of Christopher Pike and R. L. Stine, and instead tackled Tom Clancy or her mom's romance novels. Though her career path zigzagged a bit—she attended college as a violin performance and music history double major, earned a JD from Pace Law School, then worked various jobs throughout the publishing industry—Moe was thrilled to join the BookEnds team in May of 2015 as a literary agent. A Pennsylvania native, she is mum of a rambunctious corgi who is a master at stealing treats and running agility courses. When not reading, Moe can most often be found in a pit orchestra, playing violin for her favorite musicals (careful, don't ask her to pick her favorite show or you'll get a 90 minute dissertation on Stephen Sondheim and/or general Broadway trivia). She is also an avid gamer and always awaiting the next Assassin's Creed or Destiny release.

Fiction Temp Closed

Moe is primarily interested in children's literature (PB, MG, and YA + graphic novels in those ages) though the right adult work will catch her attention. She loves most genres but her heart leans toward contemporary, fantasy, magical realism, horror, and romance. She's proud to represent numerous LGBTQ+ authors, and always looking to add more BIPOC, LGBTQ+, neurodiverse, and disabled voices to her list. At this time she's not looking women's fiction or cozy mysteries.
