Our Team

​Ernie Chiara, Associate Agent

Ernie first joined the Fuse Literary team as a writer, signing on as a client with Michelle Richter. Then, when his interest in the agenting side of the business grew to match his love of writing, Ernie gained experience as an Assistant Agent under the guidance of Tricia Skinner. Now, having come full circle, Ernie is proud to be building his list as an Associate Agent.

Ernie has previously served as Communications Director for Pitch Wars, a writer mentorship program, where he was also a Mentor in the Adult category. He has over 20 years of experience in business management and graphic design.

Outspoken about the issues of equality, accuracy in representation, and the raising of marginalized voices, both in society as a whole and as they relate to the publishing industry, Ernie strives to be a fierce advocate for his clients and is passionate about representing their interests and bringing their stories to a broader audience.

In his free time, Ernie enjoys sketching and painting, wailing away on his drum kit, and playing with his three amazing kids. He specializes in Adult Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Magical Realism, as well as Young Adult Fantasy and Graphic Novels.
