Would love some WF abt female friendships; either the beautiful and fun beginnings, the stick-together middle, or the toxic ugly end #mswl

Southern flair. The real kind. Grits. PBR. "Bless her heart". Tailgating. Talking to strangers in the grocery line. Front porch gossip #mswl

I'm always a fan of "club" stories. I love when a theme/hobby/commonality brings very different characters w/ unique issues together #mswl

More on humor- I particularly like unabashed wit from my protags in YA/MG - their uncensored/unjaded view of the world can be awesome #mswl

Funny is hard but I love LOL lines in manuscripts, the sort that make other people look over at me while reading and wonder if I'm OK #mswl

I love my stories to have a dynamic setting that becomes it's own character, stories that purport the "take me away" sentiment #mswl
