When I was going to school at UConn, I learned what a literary agent was, and I knew I wanted to be one. I started as an intern with Talcott Notch Literary Agency, learning under the incredible guidance of Gina Panettieri, and was promoted to assistant and then junior agent.
The reasons why I left are outlined here. I am not hiding my past. I am hoping to move beyond it, because I have dreamed of being a literary agent for ten years, and I know I’m good at this work.
So, I am excited to announce that I am opening Tia Rose Mele Literary Agency! I have always wanted to open my on agency, and there’s no time like the present.
Starting on April 1st, I will be opening to queries for middle grade, young adult, and romance novels. I can’t wait to work with incredible authors to build their careers!
