Little know fact about me: I bake! I’d love a project that has a baking element to it. #MSWL

As someone with a sister with Down Syndrome, I'd LOVE a picture book about relationships between typical siblings and siblings with disabilities. #MSWL

Reminder that I’d love a YA about a white-passing character and the social/political/personal issues or benefits that come about because of their looks #mswl

Hey agents, anyone got a quirky MG mystery? Bonus points if it includes a Scooby Gang. #MSWL

I’ve been getting a lot of dark YA lately—which I love!—but I’m also interested in sweet, funny MG that may or may not make me cry #MSWL

Family drama is the weirdest drama. Give me a middle grade with a family like the Belchers on Bob's Burgers and/or a YA with one like the Bluths on Arrested Development. #MSWL

Question for the room: Why aren't there more picture books starring highland cows, AKA hairy coos? #MSWL

One my favorite books in high school was Catch-22, so you can pretty much throw any and all multiple perspectives and/or nonlinear timelines my way. #MSWL

Sometimes I forget not everyone grew up with a mother obsessed with true crime and serial killers. A novel along the lines of Netflix's MINDHUNTER meets THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES would be 👌🙌 #MSWL

I just want a manuscript that makes me as happy as free food does. #MSWL

I know it was originally a graphic novel, but still: Give me Netflix's "The End of the F***ing World" as a YA and I will love you forever #MSWL

I was psych minor before I learned I had to take stats. Give me a psychological YA that I can analyze for days #MSWL
