I hope to continue to see excellent YA mysteries and thrillers, Romance and Big Friendship stories (or any intersection of the two that permeates high school!), MG adventure and sleuths, and historical fiction that tackles big issues in very personal and direct ways #mswl

I am also very interested in MG or YA Non-Fiction that delves into cultural movements led by and for teens #mswl

On the #kidlit side, I am particularly interested in Non-Fiction at the moment. I would love to find innovative pb's teaching approachable science (a recent fave is Cats are Liquid) and stories that focus on marginalized communities from #ownvoices authors. #mswl

Also on the adult end I would love to find commercial and upmarket friendship focused stories that really show the complexities of modern female friendship--good bad ugly and everything in between #mswl

Happy new year writers! Here are a few #MSWL 's I am really hoping to see in my inbox in 2021. At the top of my list is big, juicy Contemporary Romance. Give me out of this world chemistry, off the charts humor, and escapism for days

At the risk of seeing my inbox explode... #amquerying folks I am not getting enough Adult Romance submissions! Please send all the contemporary and historicals my way (I'm not the best match for Rom Suspense or Paranormal) #mswl

My latest #MSWL is for imaginative and innovative MG and YA Non-Fiction. Take me beyond straight biographies time period overviews. I want to see people playing with form, topic and language

I’d love to see a story about a Typhoid Mary—someone who is a non carrier for a disease but the nexus for an outbreak and how that would play in to ones psyche #MSWL

Would also be fascinated by a SEVEN HUSBANDS style examination of FLW's wild, angering and tragic personal life #mswl

Weird specific daughter of architects #MSWL, but I would love a pb about how buildings are designed, possibly centering around a real architect or engineer (think Baby's First Eames but narrative)

And a couple of evergreen #MSWL for me: Fun and sexy rom-coms! Thrillers that surprise me and dissect genre norms (think SADIE that plays with the true-crime podcast)!

I am a big reality TV fan and am searching for books that get the complex interpersonal dynamics right. Show me behind the scenes drama, the truth about on screen chemistry and dive into the nitty-gritty of the push and pull between reality and Reality. #MSWL

In all ages and genres I am seriously hoping to see more books starring mc's with disabilities. #ownvoices especially encouraged. I want to see stories that show the full range of life and experiences--joy, accomplishments, ambition, sadness, friendship, love. #MSWL

I would love to see a YA (or upper MG) that focuses on the teen activist movement. Whether contemporary or historical, I want to see honest portrayals of how teens organize and mobilize. #MSWL

In kidlit more broadly (PB-YA) I am on the hunt for more NF that teaches and inspires in a fun accessible way. I lean towards non-fiction that focuses on a specific event or person, that really digs in to give us a clear picture as opposed to broad themes #MSWL
