DeFiore and Company

Gabrielle Piraino joined DeFiore and Company in 2016, having previously worked for both major commercial publishing houses and literary agencies alike, including Farrar, Straus & Giroux and AGI Vigliano. She’s a graduate of Pace University’s MS in Publishing program. She is also the agency’s Foreign Rights Manager. You can follow her on Twitter @nerdplusdog 

When considering new projects, Gabbie is most drawn to strong narrative voices, distinct world-building, and unique casts of characters. She’s interested in representing stories with #ownvoices and diverse characters as available. Focused on building long-term relationships with authors, Gabbie is currently accepting queries for sci-fi, fantasy, horror, thriller, and up-market chick lit (both Adult and YA). For children, she is looking for books that introduce curious young readers to new concepts. She’s interested to hear from prospective author-illustrators, and also considering nonfiction cookbook and lifestyle proposals.
