About the agency: Formerly The Reece Halsey Agency, Kimberley Cameron & Associates has a reputation for being a different kind of agency—one that cares deeply about our clients, champions the books we work on, and collaborates openly among agents. We are persistent in our pursuit of publication at the most respected publishing houses, and when we believe in someone, we do not give up easily. We have sold books after years of trying. That's what it takes in this business—passion, and a little luck.
Lisa Abellera joined Kimberley Cameron and Associates in 2013 with a background in management, marketing, and finance. She has studied creative writing, design, and business, earning her BA in Strategic Management from Dominican University of CA and her MFA in Creative Writing from University of San Francisco. She is also an alumna of Voices of Our Nations Arts (VONA).
Lisa only represents fiction. She is looking for upmarket fiction, women's fiction, and literary fiction. In genre fiction, she is looking for mystery, suspense, thrillers, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, literary horror, most speculative fiction except paranormal (no angels, demons, vampires, etc.) and romance if it is an element or sub-genre.
In children’s fiction, she’s interested in most upper middle grade and young adult genres, especially in stories that do not involve the usual middle and high school tropes.
In all categories, she is especially interested strong female characters, diverse characters, and stories by #ownvoices authors, marginalized creators, or writers from underrepresented backgrounds.
