I’d love to see historical fiction set during a wartime, with a dose of magical realism (á la The Passion by Jeanette Winterson) #MSWL

My query inbox is longing for MG and YA narrative non-fiction. Exploring history from a new angle? Finding fun ways to discuss STEM topics? Please send them my way! I want more non-ficton! #MSWL

I’d also love to see an #OwnVoices Latinx contemporary romance set in the barrio. Even better if it’s #LGBTQIA as well. #MSWL

Postscript to #pitchfest: We NEED some female villains--really badass ones. Why is it that every time a brilliant general/CEO/whatever turns out to be a criminal mastermind, it's a dude? #MSWL @HSGAgency
