(Also, rumour has it I’ll be looking for adult fiction later this year…so if you’re working on contemporary literary fiction or upmarket genre, keep me in mind.)

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

All this to say, if you’re writing a book proposal for music-related nonfiction, I’d like to see it! #MSWL

Throwing a new #MSWL into the universe: a YA historical fiction about disco subculture! 🕺🏿

I’m particularly interested in a story that explores:

🌀disco’s beginnings in Black and queer communities

🌀 the commercialization and appropriation of the genre as it gained popularity

🌀 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.
