Screen Shot 2017-11-06 at 7.08.35 PM.pngKimiko Nakamura is a literary agent with Dee Mura Literary.

Kimiko’s career started in the publishing houses of Boston where she fostered her talent for sales. At Dee Mura Literary, she found another passion: helping writers build successful careers. Kimiko works with new and emerging writers. She looks for page-turning fiction and non-fiction that leaves people inspired and offers readers a full range of emotions—laughter that slips out while reading in public, tears that splash onto our e-readers, and an aha of connection on the page, reminding us that books are more than something we simply hold in our hands.

SPECIAL INTERESTS: Contemporary/mainstream fiction, literary fiction, young adult, and women’s fiction, as well as memoir, mind and body, health, and cookbooks.

FAVORITE BOOKS: Let the Great World Spin by Colum McCann, Great House by Nicole Krauss, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares, A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby, The Art of Simple Food by Alice Waters, and One for the Money by Janet Evanovich.
