Penny Moore is the latest edition to the team at FinePrint, and like all new agents, she needs authors. Penny represents picture books, middle grade, young adult, and adult fiction. She’s also open to nonfiction projects in the realm of pop culture, humor, travel, food, and pets.

In picture books she’s looking for anything with fun off-the-wall concepts to memorable heartfelt messages. As for MG and YA, she’s interested in all genres, and is seeking inventive works that combine well-defined voice, complex characters, and compelling plot lines. She’s especially keen on YA fantasy, historical fiction, sci-fi, and contemporary stories exploring romance and the complications of growing up.

In adult fiction, her tastes lean towards literary, speculative fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, psychological thrillers, and select romance projects including New Adult.

While completing degrees in Linguistics and Japanese Language & Literature at the University of Georgia, she spent time studying comparative literature at top universities in Japan and South Korea. She then worked as a middle school TESOL teacher, a period during which she grew to love and understand the children’s book market. In 2013 she found her way to FinePrint as an intern, officially joining the agency in 2014, and has since been actively working to build her list with exceptionally talented clients.
