Naomi Davis, Literary Agent (she/they)
#MSWL in all the contemporary YA (or MG) I read, I like to see boys being feminists and practicing healthy relationships and consent. ALWAYS queer-positive. I'd also love to see a #nonfiction proposal talking directly to boys about feminism and consent.
I want to expand my nonfiction #MSWL!
- Cookbooks: I'm an adventurous cook. My passion lies in the intersection of cooking&history. I've been cooking w/ Little Teochew Cookbook by Eric Low, & in it I find terms and moments of culture to research while the oven is preheating.
Picture books (fiction or NF) that show neurodiversity, disability, LGBTQ+ family structures, diaspora or immigrant experiences
Adult NF: I'm interested in cookbooks that teach me something new about the world
Very interested in #nonfiction books for teens about dealing with mental health issues like anxiety. But with snark and relatable teenage language, the kind that makes teens feel confident in their own perspective and feels less delivered-by-adults. #MSWL
I am opening to select Non-Fiction queries. Still putting together a #MSWL, but I am particularly interested in LGBTQ+ perspectives in parenting, or funny parenting titles, or funny cookbooks. I will share more later!
