I’m so excited to open to queries tomorrow! Rather than tweet my every wish, I updated my #mswl page. Check it out, and if you think I’m a fit for your work, send it my way! #amagenting manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/kell…

I promised updated #mswl this week, but got a bit distracted by the news. My MSWL page hasn’t changed much, so it’s a good reference. For #mg, I’m on the lookout for commercial action/adventure, a story I can escape into. Also love unique settings (think Holes.)

Exciting day back in the (home) office full-time and feeling hopeful, energized and ready to take on 2021! For those who are interested, I’m planning to reopen to queries on Monday, Jan 11. I will be posting my updated #mswl through the week, so stay tuned ...

Counting down the hours until I can continue my binge of OUTER BANKS. Mystery, treasure hunt, friendship, bad guys, romance—will someone send me a YA like this? Pretty please? #mswl #ya

A year ago today we were enjoying spring break travels with friends. Would give anything to travel again—but can do so through books! Would love a ms involving travel and unexpected adeventure. Bonus if it makes me laugh! #mswl #ya #mg #amagenting

This Monday morning, I’m wishing for YA with a vivid world/setting that bends the rules in its genre—whether that be genre blending or an unexpected twist to a tired trope, I want to be surprised and taken away to another world. #mswl #ya

Updated #MSWL: humorous PB's with a surprise twist, and non-fic focusing on unsung heroes (pref. #ownvoices), MG with a clear narrative arc, unforgettable characters and a strong emotional core. Stories that bring out the magic in the ordinary. And ghosts!
