Opening up to queries soon. Authors ask me what I am looking for. A nonhelpful answer is "I'll know it when I see it." Ultimately looking for:
*adult fiction maaaayyybe some YA
* something new, fresh that I haven't seen before
* if suspense: an "I didn't see that coming" moment

I love sports of all kinds and the Olympics give me the opportunity to watch elite athletes in more obscure sports do their thing. #mswl #writingcommunity #amagenting #amwriting @Olympics @TeamUSA

Writing humor is difficult because everyone has an idea of what is funny. For me #mswl like Dave Barry, Modern Family, BBTheory, British, Mr.Bean. Smart, sharp, quick humor. Read Jenks and you'll get it. If you have it, send it to me please.

Query tip: research. You have the best shot of finding the right agent if you check out their #mswl before querying. Here's mine: adult or YA fiction or non, for fiction specifically rom com, hist, mystery, true crime, spec. Love strong female leads, diverse voices.

Other agents post their #MSWL by genre. For me, I want smart, well-written adult or YA fiction with conflict, character growth and feels. Looking for an "OMG didn't see that coming." Also nonfiction that is inspirational or solves a problem. #amwriting #writingcommunity
