Kim Lionetti is a literary agent with BookEnds Literary Agency. As the first literary agent to charm BookEnds into hiring her, Kim has been an integral part of growing the agency, along with her clients’ careers. Using the editorial skills learned during her first eight years in the industry at Berkley Publishing, Kim helps authors shape their works into books their readers will love. With twenty-five years of publishing experience, she’s worked with award winners and bestsellers in a variety of genres.
Kim’s journey into publishing began in middle school when she raided her grandmother’s collection of Phyllis Whitney books and transformed into an incurable bibliophile. Her other addictions include honey cinnamon lattes, British period dramas, Ryan Gosling memes, “Schitt’s Creek,” Indian food and Frescaritas.
With a client list including women’s fiction, mystery, young adult and romance, Kim enjoys working on a wide range of books. She’s currently eager to grow her list in the areas of women’s fiction and romance. Most especially, as an Autism mom, she is dedicated to representing the stories and voices of individuals with special needs and their families.
Originally from Pennsylvania, Kim currently resides in New Jersey with her son (knock-knock jokester extraordinaire), daughter (budding Francophile and resident drama queen), husband (80s aficionado and sports trivia master) and Winston the twenty-pound cat.
