Lisa Abellera

Kimberley Cameron & Associates

Lisa Abellera joined Kimberley Cameron and Associates in 2013 with a background in management, marketing, and finance. She earned her BA in Strategic Management from Dominican University and MFA in Creative Writing from University of San Francisco. She is an alumna of Voices of Our Nations Arts (VONA) and became a member of AALA in 2020. She is committed to uplifting underrepresented voices and infusing more diversity and inclusion in books, so she is actively looking for strong female characters, diverse characters, and stories by BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other authors who identify with underrepresented communities. Lisa responds to well-crafted prose, strong hooks, high personal stakes, complex and sympathetic characters, a tangible sense of place and lush world-building, non-Western cultural aspects/perspectives, and emotionally-immersive fiction. In adult fiction, she represents literary, upmarket/book club, and women's fiction, historical fiction, mystery, suspense, thrillers, science fiction, fantasy, and crossover speculative fiction. With children’s fiction, she represents all fiction genres in Middle Grade and YA. Lisa is also looking to build her client list with limited nonfiction. With children's nonfiction, she is primarily looking for Middle Grade prescriptive projects that are entertaining, informative, and inspire life-long-learning and curiosity in kids. With adult nonfiction, Lisa is only looking for prescriptive business books for women or by women.
