Rebecca Friedman Literary Agency
Greater Los Angeles area

Rebecca Friedman (formerly of Sterling Lord Literistic and Sanford Greenburger) started this agency just last year. As a new agency, Friedman Literary is actively building up its client list.  

Kimberly Brower is the newest member of the team. Reading has always been her passion, even while pursuing her business degree at California State University, Northridge and law degree at Loyola Law School, Los Angeles. By joining the Rebecca Friedman Literary Agency in 2014, she has been able to merge her legal background with her love of books.

Although she loves all things romance, she is also searching for books that are different and will surprise her, with empathetic characters and compelling stories. Kimberly is interested in both commercial and literary fiction, with an emphasis in women’s fiction, contemporary romance, mysteries/thrillers, new adult and young adult, as well as certain areas of non-fiction, including business, diet and fitness.

Rachel represents young adult, fantasy, science fiction, new adult and romance.
