Albom, whose previous works include "Have a Little Faith" and "The Five People You Meet in Heaven," had been a signature author for Hyperion, which has been focusing in recent years on books tied to a fellow Disney company, ABC television. Albom's agent, David Black, declined to comment on why he left Hyperion and instead emphasized his bond with Rinaldi, Harper's senior vice president and executive editor. Hyperion issued a statement Wednesday saying, "We hope Mitch Albom's career continues to grow."

Financial terms for Albom's deal with Harper were not disclosed.
