Biography

Erin Wicks acquires narrative fiction and nonfiction for the Harper and Harper Perennial lists at HarperCollins Publishers. Her authors include Sarah Gerard (Sunshine State), Karen Rinaldi (The End of Men), Ami McKay (The Witches of New York), Julia Fine (What Should Be Wild), Brian Hart (Trouble No Man), Etaf Rum (The Place an Arrow Shoots From), Bassey Ikpi (Making Friends with Giants), and the estate of Eleanor Clark.

Erin has a particular interest in books that offer minority and female perspectives on identity, sexuality, and power (fiction and non-); examinations of emotional trauma and means of catharsis (fiction and non-); literary sci-fi, fantasy, and magical realism that provide insight into contemporary society; explorations of dysfunctional friendships and families; literary historical fiction; narrative-driven nonfiction; and Portuguese-language books that appeal to American audiences.

Ultimately, and above all, her interests lie with strong and urgent voices that propel their books along and captivate her with the telling of their stories.
