A simple #MSWL request: more YA books with really awesome parents, please

Serene @serenemaria · Jan 28

As a kid I was obsessed with the Winchester mystery house and I just found out they made a horror movie about it which upsets me because I hate horror movies but also the story is so much more fascinating than that and now i need more books like that #mswl #sorryforthelongpost

Can't believe I missed #PitMad yesterday! I'd still love to see your queries, so check out my #MSWL and send 'em in!

You can read a little bit more about what I'm looking for as an agent over on @ManuscriptWList! #MSWL

A fantasy #YA that makes me feel all the feels I had when reading His Dark Materials #MSWL

Serene @serenemaria · 30 Jun 2016

I know war is an integral part of the Lebanese experience but I want to see a story (#YA or #A) that focuses on so much more than that #MSWL

Serene @serenemaria · 30 Jun 2016

Any #WF that shows a feminist experience of marriage #MSWL

Serene @serenemaria · 30 Jun 2016

#YA that offers a new perspective about what it means to be an Arab teen today #MSWL

Serene @serenemaria · 30 Jun 2016

But a few things I always like: strong women, #ownvoices, #POC, #LGBTQ+; I want underrepresented voices to just be represented #MSWL (3/3)

Serene @serenemaria · 30 Jun 2016

So my #MSWL might not be very specific but ultimately I just want to read your queries & find authors whose passions line up with mine (2/3)
