I live for LOTS of exercise, dogs, music, books, bingeworthy TV, Fussball, conversations with smart people, the surf, and a good Gin and Tonic.

I WANT YA ROM-COMs. #MSWL.
I loved The Silent Patient, 8 Perfect Murders, Wann wird es endlich wieder so wie es nie war, Die Therapie, Drive Through Dreams.
The last five days of my life were mostly drama and fear, but things are looking up. I still need cheering up, nonetheless, so my #MSWL for now is: YA friendship stories, YA romance, YA rom coms, YA boarding school books, YA hijinks, YA "All American" show TV like soap opera.
For my current #MSWL click on the picture to see all the details. You can also always find my most recent manuscript wishlist on the Triada US website.

Deliver me LGBT+ YA stories that leave the reader joyful. Plots that are fun, invigorating, and clever. I'd love to read an LGBT love or friendship story that's incredibly well written and makes me feel HAPPY afterward. #MSWL
College YA is another area that has been brought up in my informal polling, @ReadWriteandMe also mentioned it. I wish that publishers were more open to it, but if you send me a great one, we may make it happen saleswise. My next #MSWL: College YA.
These are dark times. So for distraction & entertainment I need suspense to lose myself in, or stories that make me laugh and feel. So give me loads of suspense for mysteries, and rom coms with a twist for Women's Fiction, YA and MG. #MSWL
I'd love to see more contemporary YA and MG that makes me laugh, including, but not exclusively, rom-coms. Additionally, I would love retellings where the story is told with the former antagonist becoming the protagonist. #MSWL
I'm 27 pages in, & let me tell you: I've only known @laurenspieller as a FANTASTIC agent. Now, I get to know her as a writer, & she's got me hook, line, & sinker. My new #MSWL: Query me the kind of YA novel that Lauren would write. Go buy #YourDestinationIsOnTheLeft & learn how.
A #MSWL from me: I would really LOVE to receive some really smart, funny Contemporary YA submissions. Books that make you laugh AND think. Along the lines of, i.e.: "I BELIEVE IN A THING CALLED LOVE," or "WHEN DIMPLE MET RISHI," or "THE LAKE EFFECT."
