Curtis Brown

Tess Callero has worked at Curtis Brown since 2015. She represents young adult and adult fiction manuscripts, as well as select nonfiction projects. She welcomes all YA submissions but tends to gravitate towards stories involving friendship, romance, or suspense. On the adult side, Tess is interested in commercial and upmarket women’s fiction, mysteries/ thrillers, and romance. She has a soft spot for anything involving food, sports, or Hollywood. Her nonfiction interests include pop culture, business, cookbooks, humor, biography, self-help, and food narrative projects.

In addition to her role as agent, Tess is also the Social Media Director at Curtis Brown. Follow her on Twitter (@tesscallero) and Curtis Brown on Instagram ( and Twitter (@curtisbrownltd) for updates.
