Thanks for visiting my website!
My name is Tia Mele and I’m a junior agent at Talcott Notch Literary Services. I started as an intern in 2016, and I’ve been here ever since! I love being surrounded by smart, successful women who have taught me so much about publishing and about life.
As an agent, I’m looking for middle grade, young adult, adult romance, women’s fiction, and select nonfiction projects. Visit my MSWL page for more specifics!
I’m lucky to have six incredible clients right now. Four of them are writing YA projects that are fun, emotional, romantic, and all-around amazing. One has a witchy MG that I fell in love with immediately. One has a memoir that made me laugh out loud and a romantic suspense that had me on the edge of my seat until the very end. I love all of my clients so much so I just had to shout them out here!
When I’m not working, there’s a pretty good chance I’m at a baseball game (at least in the spring/summer). I’m on a quest to see all 30 MLB stadiums, and I’ve been to 14 so far. My second sports love is football, but I’ve only been to one NFL stadium. I hope to make it to more someday!
I recently discovered that line dancing is a lot of fun. Seriously! If you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend giving it a go. It’s a great workout, but it’s also just a ton of fun, even if you don’t like country music.
I have two dogs, Vianni (a boxer/pit mix) and Ridge (a bloodhound). I also have a rabbit, Norman, who loves helping me read queries while we watch TV together.
Hiking is fun, as is sitting on my couch watching TV. I love hanging out with my family (my parents and my three siblings!) and my friends.
If there’s music playing, I’m probably dancing (badly). Going to concerts is my favorite thing in the world. I really like cosplay and going to comic-con every year!
You’re probably wondering why I’m sharing all this. Well, first of all, I’m an oversharer. Second of all, my taste in books tends to be the same as my taste in activities. So, if your book involves baseball, football, line dancing, dogs, rabbits, hiking, TV, family, friends, dancing, concerts, or comic-con, I may be a good fit. Check out the Talcott Notch website for info on how to query me!
