I'd love more chapter book and MG nonfiction that is informative but mostly FUN #MSWL

There’s been discussion on this delightful medium about MG and periods, so write it and let it flow my way (the pun is there) #MSWL

Last night at dinner we were discussing the idea of a MG book about a transgender child approaching a bar/bat mitzvah (or another religious gendered ceremony), one million percent #MSWL

Seeing some great #MSWL tweets today from agents I admire. In that spirit, I'd love to share some of mine!

- MG or YA fiction with a character who might become AOC-- that spirit, that drive, that persistence would make for a great story!
- always looking for funny
