Paige Wheeler

Creative Media Agency, Inc.

Currently president and owner of Creative Media Agency, Inc. Founded in 1997, CMA focuses on representing professional writers in a variety of genres and subject matters, and cultivating the evolving agent-author relationship. Our goal is to go beyond simply selling an author's book. From the first contract to the final sales figures, CMA has every detail covered: editorial work, marketing and publicity plans, royalties, and foreign rights. I was one of the founders of Folio Literary Management, LLC as well as a former television agent and book editor. I've worked in publishing since 1991 and have been representing authors for most of my career. I’ve been fortunate to represent many successful books, including New York Times bestsellers and USA Today bestsellers, as well as international and local bestsellers. My background in book editing has enabled me to collaborate with authors to help shape a project and my experience as a television agent has been useful in getting a number of projects made into movies. My list consists of projects with high concepts; books that answer a question that I’m asking; and stories that allow me to experience something that I’ve always wanted to do. I’m helpless against characters that grip me by the hand and don’t let go and plots that tie me up in knots.
