RN, I'm craving a YA/Adult romance with a male love interest who OOZES charm and charisma. Nothing else, just those vibes of being irresistible af and leaning into it. Please give me your Henry Montagues, Ian Flannerys, Jesper Faheys, and yes, even Jace Waylands. #MSWL

In my recent addiction to food-focused travel TV, I've learned a bit about Queen of Creole Cuisine Leah Chase and how she literally fed the '60s civil rights movement and wow what a queen indeed. Could be an awesome PB bio subject...👀 #MSWL

Finally, the thing I didn't know I wanted. I have found that several times in this past year and it has been absolute delight. My clients' creativity always outpaces my own imagination, and I love to be surprised by a book. If it's middle grade of YA, try me! #MSWL

Of course I rep a lot of amazing YA fantasy authors and always love YA fantasy, and am especially excited to find fantasy that totally upends my expectations, contemporary fantasy, and contained fantasy (a la a fantasy set on a cruise kind of thing). #MSWL

And middle grade contemporary or realistic -- with or without a twist of magic (a la WHEN YOU REACH ME) -- will always have my heart. #MSWL

I'm eager for fun middle grade series, humorous or not -- but definitely heartfelt. Sweeping worlds, sweeping adventures, kids wrapped up with gods and monsters and magic. Bonus points for fun animal (or magical-creature) sidekick characters! #MSWL

Related to both of the previous: character-driven, slow burn horror. Less slasher and more the kind where it feels like we're slowly digging beneath the surface of a seemingly normal town or place and finding the sinister monstrosity beneath. #MSWL

I'm eager to find some thrillers a la ACE OF SPADES, ONE OF US IS LYING, GOOD GIRLS GUIDE TO MURDER, etc. I have clients working on amazing supernatural/fantastical thrillers, too, like @katepearsall and @stageandpage but welcome more. I love a witchy murder mystery! #MSWL

I was just tweeting about this glaring absence the other day re TV shows but y'know what? The solution starts at home.

Gender-flipped contemporary Cinderella retelling, except I want “Cin” to be damaged, the bad boy, who needs rescuing in true enemies-to-lovers fashion by his “princess.” Make him sympathetic & redeemable at first. Make us only really like him as the plot develops. #MSWL
