Nicole Geiger is a literary agent with Full Circle Literary. She has worked in just about every capacity in the publishing industry in her thirty-plus years plus career. As VP and Publisher of Ten Speed Press/Tricycle Press then VP and Publisher of Random House/Tricycle Press, Nicole was the primary acquirer and directed the production and marketing of up to 30 children’s titles yearly. In 2011, she founded Nicole Geiger Publishing, a consultancy for publishers, where she helped launch AMP! Comics for Kids and Beyond Words’ children’s publishing in partnership with Simon & Schuster, and currently manages the publishing program of Yosemite Conservancy.
As a literary agent with Full Circle Literary, Nicole focuses on a limited group of clients who create fiction and nonfiction for board books through middle grade. Curious, commercially minded, and very editorial, Nicole is looking for strong and diverse voices that tell stories for all children. Her clients include Mercedes Acosta, Carmen Bogan, Ashleigh Corrin, Sara Fajardo, Elijah Forbes, Michael Genhart, Alexandria Giardino, Laurel Goodluck, Eileen Kennedy-Moore, Charlotte Offsay, and Beattra Solomon Wilson.
When she is not helping her clients create their best work, Nicole can be found taking walks her family’s silly chocolate Lab, puttering in the yard, and reading to her kiddos. The books on her own bedside table are usually middle grade graphic novels and adult nonfiction, especially popular science, though she’ll read about pretty much any topic as long as the writing is amazing.
Nicole has spent her career making books and is thrilled to take the next step as a literary agent with the Full Circle Literary team!
