Slut-shamey MCs are pretty much an automatic pass from me. #MSWL

An accurate comp to Holly Black is something that will *always* turn my head. #MSWL

Oh? Sounds like it could be vaguely haunted? Yes, yes. I’m interested. #MSWL

Heartily in the mood for a project where setting/atmosphere feels like a character in and of itself.

Spooky middle grade is my comfort zone 👻 #MSWL

If you start out with some variation of “so there’s this weird/creepy town” I’m probably already interested. #MSWL

Hey friends👋
A reminder that murder mystery is *NOT* for me! #amquerying #MSWL

I feel really strongly about repping books that deal with teen grief.

I was a teenager when my best friend was murdered. After that happened, it felt like no one knew how to talk to me, or maybe I didn’t know how to talk to them. I’m really not sure. #MSWL (1/?)

Either way, it was incredibly isolating, so I turned to story for comfort and an attempt at understanding.

I want to be able to provide that for other teens—a healthy space to grieve and feel and process what they’re going through. #MSWL (2/2)

I’m specifically on the lookout for women and non-binary horror writers. (MG, YA, A)

Anthropomorphized animals outside of picture books or early readers are not for me. #MSWL

If you think LGBTQ+ characters are “inappropriate” for any age range, I’m going to ask that you NOT EVER query me. And I’m not interested in saying that politely, either. #MSWL

I love books that tackle big subjects, but I also really *really* relish the humorous moments in those stories.

Every author I rep has humor in their book, no matter the topic. And I can instantly think of those moments off the top of my head.

Just saw @AllieLevick mentioned in this article of fantastic PB lit agents, and I can attest to how knowledgable, helpful, and quick to respond she is! writersdigest.com/publishing-ins…

Hey! I’m on a list! How cool.

Please send me your funny AND heartfelt author-illustrated PBs! I’m all about the ~layered~ narrative.

Big thanks to the incredible @JessLeake who totally made my morning with this!

Me again. Here to say I am really, really not here for the desecration of women's bodies to incite a man's narrative. #MSWL
