I enjoy clean, transparent prose in the fiction I represent. I'm less of a fan of the heavily literary (though there are always exceptions!) #mswl

Just a reminder: I'm a huge fan of historical fantasy, especially if you've got a setting I haven't seen before. #MSWL

In general, I’m the wrong agent for stories that are driven primarily by action scenes. This is because I have the visual imagination of a turnip. Dialogue-driven? Send it on. #mswl

I have a weird bias against stories in which the hero is a gladiator who has to fight his way to the grand prize in the arena. I loved Thor: Ragnarok, but I think this plot generally works better as a movie than a book. #mswl

I'd really love a rip-roaring history of book publishing, for example. #mswl

This #mswl is for non-fiction-- I love business history. I'd like some fun business history for a popular audience. #twitterstorians, where are you?

By the way, I want to represent more history for a popular audience (hint, hint) #MSWL

Sorry, I don't take on clients on the basis of a novella! #mswl

I don't represent historical fiction-- sorry! #mswl

This song came out the year before I was born, and I'm disappointed none of it has come true yet. But at least I can #mswl it? Send me some of that optimistic, aspirational sci-fi and fantasy please. Don't let Susan down! youtu.be/46FOlF5bZPQ

I absolutely believe you can write deep, thoughtful sci-fi and fantasy with lovable characters and a happy ending. Exhibit 1: Terry Pratchett. #mswl

I think the issue of gun violence will have to be faced on many fronts. For those of us who work in the arts, it means depicting guns as tools, rather than as magical artifacts that grant power and charisma. #mswl

Sorry, I don't represent women's fiction. I just don't have the eye for it! #MSWL

That said, a really cool novel about autonomous cars would be fun to see. #mswl
