After a wonderful two years at Fuse, I’m sad to announce that our own Jen Karsbaek is stepping down as an agent due to unforeseen family obligations. She will remain on the Fuse staff as a literary scout but will no longer be accepting new queries.

Jen had this to say, following her announcement: “I have loved my time as an agent at Fuse and absolutely love my colleagues, who are, to a one, incredibly smart and savvy. My clients were all wonderful and inventive writers to whom I wish the best of luck as they continue their publishing journeys.”

Thanks, Jen 🙂 We have nothing but love for you as well.

As Jen’s immediate supervisor, the majority of her clients have been transferred to my list, with Michelle Richter taking on Laura Heffernan.

If you have submitted or planned to submit to Jen, feel free to see if another Fuse agent is a match for your work. Our genres and submission guidelines can be found here.
