Get to Know an Agent in Attendance: Loretta Caravette of LR Children’s Literary

Screen Shot 2016-10-27 at 7.08.43 PM.pngLoretta Caravette is the founder of LR Children’s Literary.

She specializes in children’s books of all genres: picture books, early chapter books, middle grade, and young adult literature. Our agency represents both authors and illustrators. She appreciates nonfiction and historical fiction in all genres — especially picture books. She is very interested in the easy readers and early chapter books. Loretta will take on an author/illustrator combination.

“I am a writer of children’s stories. I have been published in a number of children’s magazines such as Appleseed, Boy’s Quest, and High Adventure. I received my MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Hamline University. My final lecture was published in Children & Libraries ‘Portrait of the Reader as a Young Child.’ I am currently working on a paper about the book to fiction translation, ‘Visual Emotion: The Power Behind Book to Film Adaptation.’ I live on 12 acres with my husband, two dogs, a cat, 2 beehives, nine chickens and two ducks. I am hoping to add goats to that list as soon as I fix my fence.”
