Chris Park is a literary agent with DeFiore and Company. Chris represents books across a broad spectrum of nonfiction—memoirs, narrative, prescriptive, Christian, and sports—and works with her authors to develop books that are appealing and accessible to a broad audience.
She is passionate about stories that must be told: of an achievement-oriented mother who learns the true worth of every life when her daughter is born with Down syndrome, a medical missionary who puts his life on the line treating patients during the Ebola epidemic, a couple who makes the stunning choice to forgive their daughter’s killer.
Chris is drawn in particular to authors whose faith engages the wider world, such as the Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy (CATTA) director Jason Wilson, One Day’s Wages founder Eugene Cho, The Center for Justice + Renewal founder Christena Cleveland, human rights advocate Bob Fu, and the hosts of Truth’s Table Ekemini Uwan, Michelle Higgins, and Dr. Christina Edmondson.
Her bestselling authors in the sports category include sportscaster Ernie Johnson Jr., Big Ten Network lead studio host Dave Revsine, and New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton. Publishing a book by NFL legend Brett Favre fulfilled Chris’s wedding vows – in which she pledged allegiance to the Green Bay Packers, for better or worse.
Prior to becoming an agent, Chris worked as an editor for several New York publishing houses, including Hachette Book Group and Random House, and helped launch an independent publishing company. Chris has a degree in English from Harvard University.
