Just told an editor that I am "looking for the NEVER HAVE I EVER of YA novels," and now I am telling you. If you can use the Netflix show as an honest comp to your work, I want to see it. #MSWL

@RebeccAgent THAT'S AMAZING. I was in that Leno call for several minutes and totally confused before I realized I was in the wrong meeting. At least when it's a phone call you can just quietly hang up and pretend like it never happened.
Replying to @SarahWatson42

you know if this was a rom com, this would have been my meet cute. And...if someone tries to write this as YA where a teen signs into the wrong school's distance learning on the first day and meets a boy, I need to agent it... wth... #mswl

In which my affection for Joel Gray only grows...

Playwrights, I am happy to read any Ghostlight YA, middle grade, or picture book manuscripts you write. #amagenting #mswl

And YA with a the high school Darlene Conner, all in black, surrounded by family who doesn't know what to do as she dies her hair in the sink. Not a capital D depression book, but a book about how things change when coming of age doesn't go smoothly. #mswl

I used to have an identical twin brother. Then this happened.... amp.cnn.com/cnn/2018/03/14…

Though I am not one for high fantasy or SF, I would raise my hand and say "me, me, me" for a YA set in the near future, back on earth that began with this sentence. #mswl

Is it a YA novel that passes the Bechdel test? I'm into it. #mswl
