Just learned about Mary G. Ross---one of the first female Native American engineers. She worked on design concepts for interplanetary space travel!! If any Native American writers (she was Cherokee) want to write her story, I'd LOVE to see it! :) #MSWL

I just came across a YA book coming out that used Pan's Labyrinth as a comp. I LOVE that movie and Guillermo del Toro's work in general. Writers, if you use any of his films as comps and I am so in! Delightfully dark, beautiful visuals and fantastical! #MSWL

Inspired by the latest #GodofWar game and #skyinthedeep I am really wanting a dark YA fantasy with the valkyries in it! #MSWL

In light of seeing #AQuietPlacemovie tonight, I'd LOVE to see all the YA and MG horror--smart, creepy, not derivative, with a twist. I'm not as into slasher horror---but genuinely suspenseful and scary. #MSWL

All the #MG (literary, commercial, mystery, horror, adventure, magical realism--dark or light) Almost anything! #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 12 Sep 2017

The Magicians-esque contemp. fantasy for #YA or a unique, non-western epic fantasy (dark and romantic is a +). Always loved fantasy! #MSWL

As always, I'm still looking for all things creepy and horror! #YA #MG Final Girls for YA #MSWL

#MSWL I really want a sister story or a friendship story (boy/girl, boy/boy, girl/girl) that focuses on that without a romance. #YA #MG

A late #MSWL post, but I'd love to see a Roanoke inspired horror YA. Think last season of American Horror Story.

I'd love to see something with a diverse group of teen activists standing up for others and what they believe in #MSWL #YA

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 13 Sep 2016

All the middle grade #MG !!! Heartfelt, funny, friendship or sister story, mystery, adventure, creepy. Any of these. #MSWL

I've been craving some sci-fi lately. Not so much alien or robot invasions/takeovers. Give me interstellar journies, space opera etc. #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 13 Sep 2016

YA, MG, or PB that aren't afraid to go outside the box. Genre-bending, unique structure, twists and turns. Keep me guessing! #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 13 Sep 2016

A YA version of Mozart in the Jungle (the TV show on Amazon) would be amazing! #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 10 Mar 2016

Creepy, eerie, scary #YA #MG horror. Something that feels fresh, with a twist. Keep me up at night scary! #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 10 Mar 2016

Fresh take on time travel #MG #YA Not looking for someone going back in time to save world. Think outside the box! BTW love Outlander #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 10 Mar 2016

Gorgeously written historical YA. Give me the feels-high stakes, gripping time and exciting subplot-mystery, magic, intrigue, romance #MSWL

Christa Heschke @ChristaHeschke · 10 Mar 2016

Funny. All things funny! I especially love smart humor, witty, slightly sarcastic. No gross out or over-the-top please. #MG #YA #PB #MSWL
