CHERISE FISHER

Black woman with wavy interlocs, wearing a sleeveless aqua dress, a Coreen Simpson black cameo, and smiling brightly.

Cherise Fisher began her career in publishing more than 25 years ago, working as an acquiring editor at Simon & Schuster and Penguin, where she was the Editor in Chief of the Plume trade paperback imprint. As an agent, she is interested in working with novelists who have several compulsively readable yarns in their head (both historical and contemporary), memoirists who showcase the diversity of human experience, and nonfiction writers who seek to provoke, inspire, and educate. Her intention is that all the books she helps bring into the world are relevant, enduring, and help readers maximize their life.
