Nicole Geiger is a literary agent with Full Circle Literary. She has 30 years of experience in publishing and has worked in just about every capacity in the industry. As an agent, she is focusing on both fiction and nonfiction in board books, picture books, young chapter books, and middle grade.
For 18 years, first 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. Whether as editor or publisher, she has worked with talents such as Marissa Moss, Elisa Kleven, Carmen Tafolla, Mollie Katzen, Daniel San Souci, Frank Remkiewicz, Ashley Wolff, and David Schwartz.
Always both adventurous and commercially minded, Nicole published several U.S. “firsts” including the first picture book about same-sex marriage (King & King) and the first board book about sushi (First Book of Sushi). She also edited and published the first five titles in the long-running Amelia’s Notebook series written by Marissa Moss. Books she has either edited or acquired have garnered the Jane Addams Peace Award and Honor, the Pura Belpré Honor, the Ezra Jack Keats Award, The Christopher Award, Bank Street College’s Best Children’s Books of the Year, as well as numerous ALA Notable Books, CBC Children’s Choices, and Reading Rainbow titles. The New York Times called Pretend Soup by Mollie Katzen “the gold standard” of children’s cookbooks.
Nicole has also worked as a consultant for publishers, helping to launch AMP! Comics for Kids and editing the inaugural Pearls Before Swine and Lio comics collections, and consulting on early graphic novel acquisitions. She acquired MG and YA nonfiction as part of the relaunch of Beyond Words’ children’s publishing program in partnership with Simon & Schuster; favorite acquisitions include Laurie Ann Thompson’s award-winning Be a Changemaker, Luke Reynolds’s Surviving Middle School, and Lulu Cerone’s Philanthroparties. She manages the day-to-day publishing efforts for Yosemite Conservancy, bringing to market Little Muir’s Song, a board book with text by renowned conservationist John Muir and illustrations by Full Circle’s Susie Ghahremani, Where’s Rodney? by Carmen Bogan, illustrated by Floyd Cooper (a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year), and The Sequoia Lives On by new-comers Joanna Cooke and Fiona Hsieh.
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!
