MEET OUR AGENTS!
Nicole Tugeau is the agent/owner behind the T2 Team. With over 18 years experience as an Agent, she is still ecstatic about the ever-growing Agency and committed to working happily for the network of authors and illustrators surrounding her. What she enjoys most about being an Agent is the partnership-making, the relationships and, of course, the success stories.
When she's not working at making Tugeau 2 the best agency in the world, you'll find Nicole at the gym or yoga studio, driving to soccer practice, working in the yard, meal prepping, reading and planning of her next family vacation. Nicole is married to artist and high school educator, Jeremy Tugeau, and is mom to three wonderful "big" kids, Ruby (16), George (15) and Harry (12).

Lillian Mazeika is the T2 Agency's very first Associate Agent. Coming from an art background herself, Lillian loves engaging with creators and seeing them bring stories to life. Lillian enjoys graphic novels and is always on the hunt for spooky stories and diverse voices. However, she really just adores all things kidlit. When she isn’t working, you can find her at a concert or flea market.

T2 Agents work hard for the Team. Communication is our top priority.
The T2 Agency contracts for a 25% commission on illustration projects and a 20% commission on author-illustrator projects. This includes rigorous contract negotiation, project support and invoicing.
The T2 Agency provides enthusiastic support for authors and author-illustrators and approaches writing projects with a collaborative approach tailored to the working style of the creative. Authors can expect to receive editorial notes on their projects, ongoing conversations and manuscript reviews as they refine the work, and a plan and timeline (as needed) to get the project submission-ready.
The T2 Agency's marketing program is energetic, nonstop and inclusive. An annual catalog, monthly emails to the industry, special projects, office visits, ZOOM visits, book fairs and expos, SCBWI events, and direct email marketing make up this exciting work at no additional cost to the Artist.
The T2 Agency honors an Artist's House Accounts at the point of contract. House Accounts are previous clients that the Artists wishes to service directly.
Our contract is a one-year exclusive agreement renewing automatically each year. We strive for lively, productive, long-term relationships. Contract termination is followed by a six month cooling off period.
