Nicole Fiorica joined McElderry Books in 2017 and assists Karen Wojtyla and Kate Prosswimmer while also acquiring teen, middle grade, and picture book titles. She has the pleasure of working with a number of talented authors including Kit Frick, Bethany Mangle, Laura E. Weymouth, and Julia Lyon in addition to Cassandra Clare, Margaret Rogerson, Amanda Foody, and many more. Nicole is interested in acquiring books by marginalized voices that represent diverse experiences and imaginations, and is particularly drawn to stories that explore themes of identity, belonging, friendship, and family. She loves dark, romantic fantasy and contemporary YA that brings levity onto the page, and is on the hunt for big-hearted adventures and mysteries in the middle grade sphere as well as narrative-driven picture books.
