Rebecca Matte, Contracts Manager

Rebecca Matte joined Bradford Literary Agency as Contract Manager and Agency Assistant in 2022.  Prior to joining Bradford, Rebecca worked as an Assistant to Executive Agent Laura Rennert at the Andrea Brown Literary Agency, where she provided editorial and contract support for a wide array of books across genre and age range.  In another life, Rebecca worked as an IP and contracts lawyer for several prominent firms in New York City.  She holds a JD from Harvard Law School and a BA from the University of Pennsylvania in English, Psychology, and Classical Studies.

As a reader, Rebecca seeks out adult science fiction/fantasy and queer romance.  But no matter the setting—be it a far off kingdom beset by magic or around the corner in Brooklyn—Rebecca loves books that feature diverse, complex characters in deeply rooted relationships, platonic and romantic. A well-crafted romance will make her heart sing, while a beautifully detailed friendship will elevate any book to an instant favorite.  She also gravitates towards stories of self-discovery and reinvention at all ages, particularly those that center questions of gender and sexuality. She tries to bring magic to every moment of life, and loves books that do the same.
