I'm Tia Rose Mele but you're more than welcome to call me Tia. Or T. Or TT. Or anything really, I'm not picky.
My dream is to publish a novel. Well, more than one novel ideally but really if I only ever publish one in my lifetime that would be more than enough. I've completed one novel but it needs a ton of work and agents always say no when I send it off. I have a few others completed that I've put out on submission but I haven't found a home for my writing yet.
I'm currently a junior agent and assistant at a literary agency. I'm building my list in middle grade, YA, and limited adult projects. Being an agent has been my dream for a long time and I am so excited that I have the opportunity to champion authors and assist in the publishing process.
I'm 25 years old, born in July, and very afraid of spiders. I love my family more than anything in the world. My favorite sport is baseball, followed by football, and I wrote a book about basketball.
I'm obsessed with MLB (Go Red Sox!) but I love the MiLB team in my state, the Yard Goats, and that love/obsession led me to start writing a book about a jilted journalist and the players that remind her what she loves about writing.
If there's anything else you want to know, feel free to ask! If not here, on twitter, tumblr, or email.
I have an unfinished R5 fanfiction up here. Eventually I might finish it, but I've gotten so busy and I've kind of lost motivation to write that story. It's still in my heart, so I hope to complete it someday!
