Ernie Chiara is a literary agent with Fuse Literary. A mentor at heart, Ernie loves nothing more than working with his amazing clients on the books of their dreams. Having first joined the Fuse Literary team as a writer and client himself, Ernie knows what it’s like to be in the query trenches seeking representation, and his goal is to be the type of agent every writer hopes to find. As he strives to be a fierce advocate for his clients and their long-term career goals, open communication, honesty, and dedication are the cornerstones of his approach.
Prior to becoming an agent, Ernie was an assistant agent at Fuse as well as a mentor for the Pitch Wars writer mentorship program, where he also served as Communications Director. He has past experience as a copywriter for a Fortune 500 client, and is the founder of TBRstack, a platform where your favorite authors share their favorite books. With over twenty years’ experience in the fields of business management and graphic design, Ernie brings a unique skillset of time management, critical thinking, and organization to all he does, as well as an eye for all things creative and visual.
Outspoken about the issues of equality, both in society as a whole and as they relate to the publishing industry, Ernie values accuracy in representation and the raising of marginalized voices. As such, he prioritizes work by writers from traditionally underpublished communities, since working toward correcting the imbalance in whose stories end up on shelves is essential to him as an agent.
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, Young Adult, and select Middle Grade fiction in the genres of Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Horror.
