The first few eps of #marvelousmrsmaisel have put me in the mood for a historical novel set in Paris... BUT I want it to have suspense/mystery elements, and lean literary in style. Universe, halp?! #MSWL

Feeling very hungry for narrative non-fiction these days! Some 2018 non-fiction I have LOVED (but not repped): Educated (duh, who didn't?), All You Can Ever Know, The Personality Brokers, The Real Lolita, I'll Be Gone In The Dark, Dead Girls, I Am I Am I Am. #MSWL

The "Bully" episode of @CriminalShow would make a great novel: community reuniting to exact justice when law enforcement fails. #MSWL

If you are querying adult fiction that bears any sort of comparison to SECRET HISTORY, let's talk! #MSWL
