#MSWL Would also really love to see more picture book and YA contemporary stories written by Native American/First Nations, Metis, or Inuit creators. Authors or author/illustrators welcome.

#MSWL In YA contemporary, I think some authors think "I went through something that was wild and powerful but I was a strange/uncool kid so probably no one else experienced something similar."
Not true! Write that! Wring every drop out of it! Put it on the page and query me.

#MSWL queer elements in YA contemporary always a bonus for me, because I am absolutely queer too. Show me teen friendships that influence us for life. Show me connections that fracture in devastating ways.
I am closing to YA Fantasy & Sci Fi. List is full on those for the moment.

Updating my #MSWL!
I desperately want YA contemporary. Powerful female friendships fraught w/tension & drama. An updated YA Girl: Interrupted. Show me how a peer catastrophe in high school truly feels like the end of the world. Validate those moments & their impact.

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'm only open to picture books that fit my #MSWL - right now, I want heartwarming pbs that address special needs, LGBTQ+ families, or diaspora experiences.
Also, funny word-play books like THE WONKY DONKEY.

Still really really looking for an updated YA GIRL: INTERRUPTED type story! Powerful, combustible friendships between teen girls, and stories that talk about the weird, emotionally-fraught ups and downs of teen friendships. #MSWL

Also really wanting a YA contemporary story that shows teens in juvenile detention or trying to navigate teen life while on probation. #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!

I really love moments when someone you respect makes an offhand comment that affirms your deepest wishes for the perceptions people have of you. It means little to them at that moment, but it fuels you for years to come. Build these into YA contemp stories for me plz! #MSWL

WHY AM I NOT GETTING ALL THE BOOKS ABOUT LADY KNIGHTS?

#MSWL! Bring me a story that is ALL ABOUT BRIENNE OF TARTH (but in a less-typical-medieval-style fantasy landscape with wildly original fantasy/magical elements)
