Hi! I get this Q a lot, so--

@RossYoon is a nonfiction agency, but I'm expanding my list to include nonfiction + SFF.

Across both, I want to learn surprising things through compelling characters.
For specific examples, check #MSWL

Also on my #MSWL--everyone and their mother is producing/staging/writing adaptations of Twelfth Night

That's great! I love Twelfth Night, you love Twelfth Night, we all love Twelfth Night.

But please, for the love of Jacques, will somebody send me an "As You Like It" adaptation

Every time I see another mediocre Europe-based fantasy, I think of how many brilliant non-European fantasies got rejected to make room for it.

Non-European fantasy is on my forever #MSWL.

Please send it to me so I can submit it to the host of editors who tell me regularly how hungry they are for different stories, fresh settings, and fresh points of view.

In the last 2 days, 2 editors have told me they're looking for SFF rooted in Vietnam and more broadly SE Asia.

If that's your book and you're looking for an agent, get in touch!

#MSWL *whispers* send me a *clears throat, louder now* send me a vampire book, for I am ready

In this arena, the right match for me would be a project that leans Carmilla or Christabel rather than Buffy or Bella.
