Welcome | Agency Intro & Overview

Robert G. (Bob) Diforio launched D4EO Literary Agency in 1989 after a long career at the New American Library (NAL), now an imprint of Penguin Random House. The agency is named after him (D4EO, for Diforio).  Today D4EO is a full-service, multi-agent literary agency representing authors of a very broad range of commercial fiction and non-fiction for children, young adults, and adults.

Books represented by the agency have topped the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists, and agency authors have received awards that include the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense and the Nero Award, as well as nominations for the Hugo Award, among many other notable successes.

With over 2,000 published books under contract, the agency has launched the writing careers of more than two hundred authors.
