Laurie Abkemeier is a literary agent with DeFiore and Company. Originally from northern California, Laurie Abkemeier graduated from Wells College with a degree in communications. Her first job was as an editorial assistant in the Touchstone/Fireside division of Simon & Schuster, and she soon moved to Hyperion where she acquired and edited dozens of books and was responsible for five New York Times bestsellers and many national bestsellers.
In 2003, Laurie joined DeFiore and Company as a literary agent. Her talented roster of authors includes journalists, bloggers, poets, academics, and artists. She has represented multiple New York Times and national bestsellers, and she has overseen many book-to-screen deals, including those that led to the #1 blockbuster movie Marley & Me and The CW drama Hellcats. Laurie strives to maintain an eclectic list in which projects don’t overlap, but rather connect. She is currently considering only new narrative nonfiction projects, except in the case of a referral.
