For #YA contemporary, it’s the same idea minus going space bound & magical realism. Cultures are magical to me and there are so many to learn from. Show me transparency on love and intimacy in EMBROIDERIES, and the burden of familial obligations in IT ALL COMES BACK TO YOU.
For #YA SciFi, fantasy and contemporary, I love a trope where the younger generation is showing the older one a new way to thrive. Break generational trauma like in THE INHERITANCE OF ORQUIDEA DIVINA, and rebel to outer space to follow your own path in BINTI.

In 2022, I'm focusing on building my #Adultfiction, #YA, & #MG lists with a majority of underrepresented voices.
