What I *do* want to see right now: Characters who are smart, unapologetic, make hard choices. Fighters. Diversity w/in those stories. #MSWL

Like, how in 2016 do you write a coming out narrative without thinking about all of the ways in which that construct has changed.

*ahem* Read this thread. And also #MSWL re: reinvented, modern LGBT stories. https://t.co/VZJp8bDTmZ

Life is messy! People are complex! So I think books should be too. I want to be spurred to reflect on my life choices & my future #MSWL

Same, same, same in all genres I represent! #MSWL https://t.co/VUHHKFcmAv

In case anyone needs a reminder, Pushing Daisies is Roald Dahl meets noir meets pie. It's streaming on the CW app. Also on my #MSWL forever!
