Something that will forever and always be on my #MSWL is "food books" because I'm still chasing the dopamine rush I got every time I read BUNNY CAKES as a kid and saw the cakes Ruby and Max made. 😋🎂✨

GIFT BOOKS
Don’t forget me for fun gift books that you'd impulse-buy (like THE COMPENDIUM OF MAGICAL BEASTS), concept-driven photography books (like THE ART OF CLEAN UP, or a devotional with a good hook (like KNIT, PRAY, SHARE)! #MSWL

ADULT FICTION
I’m looking for pageturning thrillers, book club fiction that is engaging and accessible, but still layered and thought-provoking. (You *might* call that “the intersection of commercial and literary.”) Think Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’d also LOVE hooky rom coms. #MSWL

YOUNG ADULT (PT. 2)
Aside from graphic novels, I am still in pursuit of a magical-yet-quiet mermaid novel, so my inbox is a safe cove to any mermaids that would like to swim in. ✨🧜🏼‍♀️

MIDDLE GRADE
I really love finding a good magical MG novel, but I’m open to a wide range here. Voicey contemporaries, mystery, magical realism/contemporary fantasy, graphic novels, historical fiction, verse, epistolary. When in doubt, send it my way! #MSWL

Since I’m now back open to queries, I’d love to share a bit more about what types of projects I’m currently looking for. Buckle up for a #MSWL thread. 💜

PICTURE BOOKS
In the PB space, I have 3 top priorities:

1. Stories by BIPOC creators in general, particularly family narratives. I love falling in love with a new fictional family!

2. Humor! I need a good laugh. Kids do, too.

3. MAGIC! Send me magical stories!!! ✨

I would loooove to work on something similar to THE HAUNTED LAKE, which is a really unique, spooky, folktale-feeling picture book. (Except I'd prefer something with a shorter length.) Send those spooky stories my way! #MSWL

PEARL by Molly Ide. A very special tale.

MERMAID AND ME by Soosh. For every little girl who dreamed of having a mermaid best friend! pic.twitter.com/1WvAi2uW3q

I’m so excited to shepherd more mermaid books into the world! It delights me that writers know I love mermaids, because it means a lot of mermaid projects swim into my inbox, which is the best. Keep 'em coming. ✨🧜🏾‍♀️💜
