30 Minutes Q&A
Cherise Fisher is the Principal of The Scribe’s Window, a book development company committed to helping both fiction and nonfiction writers express themselves more clearly, more honestly, and more powerfully.
She began her career in publishing as the assistant to the Editor-in-Chief of Dell Publishing a month after graduating from Yale University. She later moved to Simon & Schuster, where she built a strong list of commercial fiction and non-fiction titles covering a broad spectrum of topics including Christianity and spirituality, relationships, business and career development, sexuality, health and fitness, pop reference and pop culture, illustrated books and commercial African American fiction.
Ms. Fisher also spent four years as the Editor-in-Chief of Plume, where her extensive trade paperback experience shaped the success of Plume’s publishing program. Plume, a trade paperback division of Penguin USA, is the publisher of many bestselling and award- winning authors including Tracy Chevalier, Eckhart Tolle, Jenny McCarthy, Ayn Rand, August Wilson, and Karen Joy Fowler, among others.
Over the course of her eighteen year career, she has shepherded several books to nationally bestselling status and worked with scores of new and experienced authors, including Michael Baisden, Pat Croce, Leonard Maltin, Todd Wilbur, Michael Corbett, Nelson George, Paule Marshall, Tony Parsons, George Lopez, Farrah Gray and Victoria Christopher Murray.
It is her intention that all the books she helps bring into the world are relevant, enduring, and help readers maximize joy and productivity in their lives.
