My love for music documentaries has grown during the pandemicโ€”the creative process, how certain musicians/albums/singles react to and influence history and culture.

All this to say, if youโ€™re writing a book proposal for music-related nonfiction, Iโ€™d like to see it! #MSWL

Throwing a new #MSWL into the universe: a YA historical fiction about disco subculture! ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿฟ

Iโ€™m particularly interested in a story that explores:

๐ŸŒ€discoโ€™s beginnings in Black and queer communities

๐ŸŒ€ the commercialization and appropriation of the genre as it gained popularity

๐ŸŒ€ the (racist and homophobic foundation of the) anti-disco movement

I will not be content until I have a contemporary series like this on my own middle grade list! Desperately seeking the real-life drama of frenemies, first crushes, and exploring self-identity/expression for 10-year-olds.
