Fuse Literary promotes Michelle Richter to Agent
June 19th, 2018 – San Francisco, California – Fuse Literary, the literary agency that focuses on technology, innovation, and expansion of storytelling into new media, today announced the promotion of Michelle Richter from Associate Agent to Agent at the firm
Partner Laurie McLean recognized Michelle’s potential right away. “Michelle came to us after eight years as an editor at a Big Five publisher in New York. She has that wonderful blend of intelligence, hard work ethic, creativity, and love of publishing. I knew that she would easily make the transition to being a literary agent, and her flurry of deals lately has proven me right.”
Prior to agenting, Michelle worked at St. Martin’s Press with fiction and nonfiction authors, including actress Melissa Joan Hart and science writer Jeremy Shere, after obtaining her Master’s in Publishing from Pace University.
“Fuse has offered such a dynamic and supportive environment to grow as an agent,” Richter said. “2017-18 has been especially exciting for me, seeing clients fulfill their dreams, and in the case of Kellye Garrett, win multiple awards for her work.”
As an agent, Michelle is primarily seeking crime fiction, women’s fiction, and contemporary romance. Diverse voices are always welcome.
