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.
When considering new projects, Gabbie is most drawn to strong narrative voices, unique world-building, and diverse casts of characters. Focused on building long-term relationships with authors, she is currently accepting queries for sci-fi, fantasy, horror, thriller, and up-market chick lit (both Adult and YA). She’d also be happy to review queries from prospective author-illustrators for comics/graphic novels. She’s interested in representing stories with #ownvoices and diverse characters as available.
