4. AND hey, I'm a student of French & Arabic. I'll be in the Middle East soon, in Amman, Jerusalem, Hebron, Nazareth. I'd LOVE to see any story, MG or YA, by a Palestinian author (or indeed Lebanese, Jordanian, Iraqi); could be fantasy but realistic even better. #MSWL

3. In YA, charming, hooky, unexpected rom-coms by #ownvoices writers that bring something new to the genre (there's a lot around now, so it's got to be fresh) but also raise questions about life today for teens. #MSWL

2. I'd also love to see something gothic, creepy, mysterious -- in both MG and YA. Not horror, but very creepy; perhaps a suffocating town or house where strange things happen? #MSWL

Authors! I've been closed to queries for 3 months due to ill health in my family. I am re-opening today, but being somewhat specific on what I'm seeking. Please read this thread or my #MSWL… (The tulip is just for fun.) ....

I love @lynnweingarten’s YA. Dark, twisty, sexy, stylish, lean in the writing. Totally my #MSWL - I adore suspenseful stories with fresh twists & cool structures/POVs.

My #MSWL in MG or YA? A memorable voice. A fresh concept. A pitch that hooks, and writing that grips. Genre? I'm always open on that.

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 13 Apr 2017

I love quality writing + strong concepts & hooks + emotional resonance + diverse authors/cultures + cool POVs/structures in MG & YA. #MSWL

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 8 Feb 2017

Always keen to see unique YA fantasy derived from other cultures/mythologies. #MSWL

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 8 Feb 2017

My fave YA recently? THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR by @NicolaYoon. Love smart, diverse, new ways of portraying teen journey. #MSWL

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 4 Nov 2016

Always seeking YA fantasy that has roots in another culture (non Anglo-Saxon). Must be rich & different. #MSWL

Renewing my call for a Cambodian writer . . . MG, YA? I'm interested in anything/everything.#MSWL

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 13 Sep 2016

#MSWL A great new YA voice & a premise that does something different. Could be any genre! History, magic mixed with reality?

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 16 Aug 2016

I'm always seeking: 1) MG with great voice, heart & charm 2) YA with a fresh concept & voice that's engaging, standout. Bring it on! #MSWL

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 26 Jul 2016

Looking for a standout new YA author. Strong concept, quality crafting, standout voice & POV. Open on genre, but needs a USP. #MSWL

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 19 May 2016

Also seeking a YA novel set in the French Revolution: think THE LUXE (in tone/voice) but with guillotines and forbidden love. #MSWL

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 19 May 2016

I'd love to find a YA contemporary Scandy Noir novel: like, The Bridge, The Killing for teens. #MSWL

Sarah سارة Davies @SarahGreenhouse · 22 Apr 2016

I'd love to find a YA novel with a fabulously creepy house; layered secrets, a great sense of place. Literal or metaphorical ghosts. #MSWL
