Fiona is a great partner to have in a creative life. She’s knowledgeable, communicative, respectful and fun. She offers insights into what the market is excited about without squelching ideas or enthusiasm for projects. She has relationships with great editors at great houses and works hard to find a good match for projects and a supportive home for me and my work. She’s really savvy about how to present work and marshal interest so that I can make living doing what I love. All in all, she has taken my career a higher level and I feel super lucky to be working with her.

-Elizabeth Rusch, award-winning author of YOU CALL THIS DEMOCRACY, YALSA finalist and NYPL Best Book.
