Jennifer is very happy to announce that she’s currently working with Derek Anthony McDow this winter. Derek currently resides in the Sacramento area. Here’s a bit more about Derek:
Recovering bibliomaniac & perfervid reader, Derek Anthony McDow is excited to join Team Fuse as an intern and first reader. Derek has finally nestled into the philia phase of his bookish passions after recently jettisoning hundreds of books to his local Friends of the Library in a purge that could be referred to as Renton-esque. With a penchant for poetry and literary fiction, some of Derek’s favorite authors include David Foster Wallace, Cormac McCarthy, J.M. Coetzee, Louise Glück & Zadie Smith. Derek has a B.A. in English Education and M.A. in English from California State University (Sacramento).
Jennifer appreciates Derek’s sophisticated reading taste, honest opinions, and and cogent assessments of materials in her query box. Derek will work closely with Jennifer on scouting, evaluation of queries, submissions, and all things that entail agenting. Welcome Derek!
