Important: Visit each agent’s website (links in their listings below) to see if they’re open to submissions before querying.
Nicole Tugeau is a literary agent with Tugeau 2. She is the agent-owner behind the T2 Team. With 20 years (!) experience as both an agent and agency owner, she is still ecstatic about her ever-growing Agency and committed to working hard (and ethically) for the network of bestselling and award-winning authors and illustrators that surround her. What Nicole enjoys most about being an Agent is the partnership-making, the friendships and, of course, the success stories. Nicole is a regular contributor to SCBWI and a growing number of colleges and universities that support the visual arts and the children’s publishing industry. She is also committed to the community of children’s agents and helped to found an independent agent network, KidLitAgents, that chats and zooms regularly to discuss industry, business and contractual topics.
Nicole started the Agency with her artist husband, Jeremy Tugeau, in 2003 out of their downtown apartment in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The couple relocated closer to home in 2005 settling east of Cleveland in Cleveland Heights, Ohio and starting their family. Jeremy became a high school art and film teacher, and Nicole was able to connect more vibrantly with the New York industry and high trade publishing. Today, the agency is home to three associate agents and over 60 gorgeous, award-winning authors, illustrators and author-illustrators.
When she’s not working at making Tugeau 2 the best agency in the world, you’ll find Nicole at the gym, teaching yoga (she’s a 200-hour CYT), driving to soccer practice, working in the yard, cooking, reading or planning her family’s next vacation. Nicole and Jeremy are parents to three wonderful “big” kids, Ruby (17), George (16) and Harry (12).
