For MG fiction, my interests fall heavily on the action-adventure scale, especially stories informed by non-western mythology and folklore. Loud and funny is a better fit than quiet and contemplative. In nonfiction, I love topics that kidsโ€”and Iโ€”can geek out about.

Iโ€™m really itching for some MG manuscripts that take me on an adventure, especially #own ones about non-Western places and cultures. I love mythology and folklore and spooks and puzzles, and Iโ€™m a sucker for a snarky narrator. If this is your book, please send my way! #MSWL

Been slowly making my way through the Rick Riordan presents lineup, and sweet peaches (see what I did there?), these books are so good. Iโ€™m very much so looking for an MG action/adventure global mythology standalone or series. VERY MUCH SO. #MSWL

OKAY TWITTER. What's the new YA genre trend going to be? Let's decide now so we can all start drafting our dystopian-vampire-werewolf-super hero-space novellas and get 2020 off to a banging start.

I know mythology tends to skew MG, but Iโ€™d LOVE to see more global mythology and folkloreโ€”especially in genres outside of action/adventure. I know yโ€™all have some spooky folklore ripe for horror. And rom coms with minor deities? Guided journies through loss? Yes. All of it. #MSWL

#MSWL I want to see more YA #ownvoices stories including the mythology of the Americas. I love me some Greek/Egyptian/Nordic retellings, but I'm looking for something closer to home.
