Reiko Davis

DeFiore and Company
Literary Agent
New York, NY
Reiko Davis is an agent at DeFiore and Company. Before joining DeFiore in early 2016, she was at Miriam Altshuler Literary Agency for four years. She grew up in Kansas City, received her BA in Comparative Literature and Art History from Brown University, and is a graduate of the Columbia Publishing Course. Above all, she wants to discover books that surprise her and make her feel something. She’s looking for well written, voice-driven books, in the adult, young adult, middle grade, and narrative nonfiction categories. 

In fiction, she loves beautiful writing, but a book always has to have a compelling story to draw her in. She’s interested in both literary and commercial fiction. She loves a strong narrative voice; smart, funny heroines; narrowly located settings (especially towns in the South and Midwest); and stories that cross borders (in culture, geography, or tradition). In children’s books, she is actively looking for young adult and middle grade fiction—whether it be contemporary, historical, fantasy, or simply a story with a timeless quality and vibrant characters. For nonfiction, she most interested in psychology, narrative history and science, and memoir.
