Mary C. Moore

Aevitas Creative Management

Mary was an early reader. She surprised her mother by learning to read at age four. Her love of reading continued through her first career path as a biologist, spurring her to write fiction during her off time. She earned a Bachelor of Science: Evolution, Ecology, and Conservation from the University of California San Diego, became a veterinarian’s assistant, then a field biologist in Ghana, Costa Rica, and Hawaii, and then a zookeeper at the San Francisco Zoo, while she wrote her first novel. Inevitably her passion for reading and writing drew her to publishing and she made a career change in her early thirties. She graduated from Mills College, Oakland with a MFA in Creative Writing and English, dabbled in freelance editing and copy-writing, and started an internship at Kimberley Cameron & Associates. She quickly fell in love with agenting, and dedicated two years as Kimberley’s assistant, before beginning her own client list in 2015. In 2019 she officially began agenting full time, and became a member of the AALA in 2020. She moved over to Aevitas Creative Management in 2023.
