Teresa Chris established her eponymous agency in London in the
early nineties. She had previously been a partner in the Thompson
and Chris Literary Agency based in the United States in San Francisco.
In the last ten years the agency has placed its emphasis more
on fiction. It handles commercial and literary fiction, specializing
in crime and womens commercial fiction. It also represents
on the non-fiction side history, biography, cookery, lifestyle,
gardening and crafts.
The agency is famed for discovering new talent either
through the slush pile or recommendation and working editorially
with authors. The agency is also well known for helping authors
who have hit a mid career slump and taking them on to a new level
of success. A comprehensive list of our published authors can
be found on this website.
The agency is proud of the fact that many of its authors feature
on bestseller lists both here and abroad. Clients regularly are
shortlisted for and win awards. For more information see the Awards
The agency has strong representation in all overseas territories
and for TV and Film rights. The Teresa Chris Literary Agency is
a member of the Association of Authors Agents and abides
by its code of conduct.
