Ernie loves nothing more than being able to work with his amazing clients on the books of their dreams. Having first joined Fuse Literary as a writer and client himself, he knows what it's like to be in the query trenches, and his goal is to be the type of agent every writer hopes to find.
Prior to becoming an agent, Ernie was an Assistant to Fuse Senior Agent Tricia Skinner, was a mentor and Communications Director for the Pitch Wars writer mentorship program, was a copywriter for a Fortune 500 client, and is the founder of TBRstack, a platform for authors and publishing professionals to share lists of their favorite books.

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. He strives to be a fierce advocate for his clients and their interests, and is passionate about bringing their stories to a broader audience.
With over twenty years' experience in business management and graphic design, things like time management, critical thinking, and organization were ingrained in him early on and have carried over into how he approaches agenting, as well as having an eye for all things creative and visual.
In his free time, Ernie enjoys sketching and painting, wailing away on his drum kit, binge-watching the latest fantasy series, and playing with his three amazing kids.
