Guys, I need a pirate manuscript in my life ASAP. Who has one they can query me with? I need to relive my favorite books right now. Bonus points if you have a character with a personality or traits like Tia Dalma/Calypso with a hard pirate/sailing edge. #MSWL

Seriously, Brooklyn is my new favorite movie and it makes me so happy every time I turn it on. I ordered it on DVD on 2-day delivery just so I can bring it to the U.K. With me and force @writerShanna to watch it. πŸ˜‚ Anyone have a YA historical like this? #MSWL

#MSWL #LGBT How about hist fic where nobleman's WIFE finds a mistress and must conceal their love? 😍

I second this #MSWL. I'd totally also be down for a historical where a woman is married and knows her husband is in love with another man, but they're best friends, so she helps him hide it from the public, or vice versa. Read one like this once and am still in love with it.

Currently watching Brooklyn and taking a break from work, and OMG I'M LOVING THIS MOVIE!! 😭 Why am I such a romantic slub recently? I love this. Can I have a Historical like it?! PLEASE?! #MSWL YA or Adult, I totally don't care. 😭😭😭

You know what'd be cool to see more of in YA Fantasy? Mythologies no one has read before, like the hundreds of Native American tribes, or the 54 countries and thousands of tribes within Africa, or Haittian or Persian or Hittite. Something that can open our eyes and minds. #MSWL

I have a secret weakness for sci-fi that's monster and tech heavy...and maybe even including aliens. My love for movies like Transformers and Pacific Rim have no bounds! If you can give me something like Pacific Rim technology and piloting in a book, I'd be so happy! #MSWL

Sends out a million #MSWL wishes into the universe for a YA version of this to show up in my inbox.…

I've also been hoping for a teen version of a hopeful Les Ballets Trockadero De Monte Carlo. Erica, definitely look them up, and I think you'll love them! ❀️ #MSWL

Is it weird that I seriously want a Valkyrie type of fantasy with an odd twist that doesn't quite make them Valkyrie?

...but it's the same type of idea?

Do my #MSWL tweets ever make sense?

With all these pitch contests coming up, I'd love to give everyone pitching a chance to get to know me as a person and as an agent so that you all can make the best decision for yourselves whether or not to submit to me. So I'm giving you random facts and am open for questions!

I have a horse and his name is Leroy, but I dislike most horse manuscripts because I will normally find the authors is wrongly informed, has never had a real connection with a horse, or the horse gets injured. Avoid these, and we might be okay. #MSWL

#MSWL I'd like to state for the record that I am still looking for, and will always be looking for, diverse perspectives, authors, characters, cultures, and environments in manuscripts and books. This includes POC, LGBTQIA+, genderfluid, neurodiverse, and all the other categories

When you see Anastasia on Broadway, and you just have to!

P.S. @kortney_price and I want broken down castles in manuscripts. I'd totally want mine to be creepy. #MSWL
