Wed Mar 31, 2021

Prior to becoming a literary agent, Theresa was an attorney at Cooley Godward, a Silicon Valley law firm. But it was her love of books and interest in combining business and art that propelled her toward a publishing career.  An agent since 1995, she represents principally bestselling commercial fiction and a short list of serious nonfiction. The authors she represents have topped global bestseller lists, enjoyed blockbuster film success, earned major advances from the best publishers in the business, and sold millions of copies of their books in every language. Dedicated to clients Nicholas Sparks, Debbie Macomber, Emily Giffin, Janice Y.K. Lee, Taylor Jenkins Reid, Cecelia Ahern, Deborah Harkness and others, she always finds time to enjoy a good meal, make a yearly visit to Vienna, Austria (her hometown) and connect with friends and family all over the world—she is fluent in German, can speak French and understand a smattering of Japanese. Theresa is a graduate of UC Santa Cruz and Harvard Law School, her varied education and background making her a uniquely broadminded business partner–but it’s her love of connecting ideas and people that makes her a great agent. Theresa is also the founder and president of the production company Per Capita Productions, developing TV shows at Apple and Amazon Studios, as well as feature films with A24 and other studio and producing partners.
