On June 3rd, Cara Mannion from Harold Ober Associates, Inc. spoke at a Paragraph Agent Roundtable.
A graduate of New York University’s Summer Publishing Institute, Cara Mannion is the newest addition to the legacy agency Harold Ober Associates. She worked in editorial at Entangled Publishing’s new adult imprint for two years before joining the agency world. At HOA, she works in both the book and film/TV worlds as she assists with selling books’ motion picture rights. Originally hailing from the sunny beaches of Florida, Cara is now enjoying seeing the seasons actually change while actively building her own client list. She can be found on Twitter @Cara_Mannion.
Cara is currently looking for: mainly YA and adult commercial fiction, including romance (and all its subgenres), historical fiction, women’s fiction, paranormal, science fiction, horror, and mysteries. Limited interest in nonfiction includes humor and biography. Cara particularly enjoys strong female protagonists, diverse protagonists, subversive conspiracy plots, and opening lines that make you want to jump headfirst into the book.
