Moe Ferrara | BookEnds Literary

Moe is interested in fictional works for all ages, including picture books, middle-grade, young adults, and adult readers. Her list skews toward children's fiction, but she is on the hunt for select authors in the adult space. Favorite genres include contemporary, fantasy & magical realism, horror, retellings, romance & rom-coms, science fiction and anything LGBTQIA-centric. She's particularly keen to find books with pain-in-the-ass main characters, dark and creepy settings with lyrical voices, and books with well-thought out twists and turns. SciFi should be easily accessible and horror should not make her need to keep the lights on! Send her your LGBT+ books that are about more than just a coming out story. She's proud to represent numerous LGBTQ+ authors, and always looking to add more BIPOC, LGBTQ+, neurodivergent, and disabled voices to her list.  Overall, though, she loves being surprised by books she never knew she wanted—so if in doubt, query her!

Moe is also open to select narrative nonfiction titles dealing with LGBT+ history, theatre (including biographies or theatrical analysis such as Horowitz's Sondheim on Music), and music theory.

She is not a good fit for upmarket/literary fiction, cozy mysteries, true crime, women's fiction, high fantasy, hard sci-fi, or inspirational romances.
