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

All the witch books. All the time.

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

There's always been something really magical to me about the solstice--I would love to see a middle grade or YA in which something truly magical happens on the longest day of the year. #MSWL

Me again. Reminding you @TheTwilightZone is
SO.
DAMN.
GOOD.

Tonight’s high-stakes thriller in an enclosed space (Six Degrees of Freedom) is exactly what I’m looking for. #MSWL

PS-It’s extra fun if you have the context of the old series.

One of my biggest, most important career goals is to bring books (yes, plural) to market that talk about relationship violence in a constructive way for teens. If you have that, please know I am here and waiting for you. #MSWL

If you're making light of murder, I can promise your book is not for me. #MSWL #amquerying

I would love a story (I'm leaning toward middle grade) where a student takes on the school dress code. Dress codes are notoriously discriminatory (both sexist and racist) and I would love to see that tackled in fiction. #MSWL

Stories inspired by weird/haunting real places are a must. #MSWL

I am grateful for all the projects out in YA right now that deal with sexual assault, but I would really like to see more that highlight the differences in treatment when you aren’t a straight, white, cis, privileged woman. #MSWL

Just finished EXIT, PURSUED BY A BEAR and really loved it. #MSWL for a friendship like Polly and Hermione’s.
