Caryn Wiseman is a literary agent with the Andrea Brown Literary Agency. After a first career in consulting, Caryn began her second career as an agent in 2003 and has never looked back. Social justice has been at the heart of her list since she started agenting, and she is always on the lookout for authentic, kid-appealing stories and art that disrupt the prevailing narrative in some way. No matter the genre, Caryn looks for characters that stick with her long after she has closed the book. She loves a story that brings her a good, cathartic cry, a huge belly laugh, some outrage, some new knowledge, and above all, hope.
Caryn holds an MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA, and a BS from the University of Virginia. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and dog. Somehow her two children have become twenty-somethings.
