Hey authors, I would love a ballet book #MSWL

Here's a new #MSWL for you all: I am dying for a novel inspired by the pirates Mary Read and Anne Bonny. Could be an epic YA love story.

Very actively looking for middle grade at the moment! #MSWL

I'm getting a lot of dark and heavy queries lately. These are great, but I would also love some sweet and whimsical reads, too! #MSWL

We are hurting right now, but it is also a call to action. I am committed to representing diverse voices. #WeNeedDiverseBooks #mswl

Novels have the power to promote change. They train us in empathy and understanding. I am committed to fighting the fight. #mswl #ownvoices

As a literary agent, I am uniquely positioned to magnify voices. As a person with a passion for social justice, I want diversity #mswl
