Someone put the idea of a book on imposter syndrome in my head and now I can't let it go. #mswl

Current mood: I'd love to read a rom-com ala "Leap Year." Out-of-her-element American overseas, opposites attract, fun and quirky, w/ 🔥chemistry #MSWL

I’d love to see some really fun, quirky, voicey commercial MG in my inbox as of January. (I mean, feel free to send it in December, but I’m working through my current submissions rn.) #MSWL

I think my favorite underrated quality in MC’s (who aren’t cis men) is pure ambition, for good or ill or morally gray. Felicity Montague, Xifeng, Jude Duarte: I love them all. Which is to say, writers, send me your Slytherins 🙏🏼 #MSWL

Ok, so I love movies and stories about a group of kids going out and having adventures, so I'm looking forward to the new Ghostbusters, but have you noticed all these stories are usually all boys? Maybe one girl?

Give me an all girl cast adventure MG. #MSWL

#amquerying writers, I'm going to dedicate time over the holidays to read submissions, so now is a great time to query!

I'm eager to find more middle grade, from contemporary standalones & illustrated MG to sweeping adventure & fantasy series. I'd love more YA contemp & grounded YA fantasy or "twist of magic" stories, too. And YA paranormal (I'm here for your vampires & werewolves) #mswl

It's that time of year when I'm really in the mood for cozy mysteries. I'd be really excited to see a contemporary YA or upper MG that has diverse characters, a playful, intriguing hook, and isn't dark or super serious--like Goldie Vance / Scooby Doo / Hallmark level drama. #MSWL
