My love for music documentaries has grown during the pandemicβ€”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

You know how Gwenyth Paltrow hired a book curator for her home? (If you didn't, now you do.) Well, I want nonfiction books a curator would pick out for Busy Philipps. #MSWL

Speaking of learning (I'm a Virgo, leave me alone), I love working on nonfiction books. It's difficult to list specific topics because I don't know what I don't know! Teach me something cool. #MSWL

I really, really want illustrated nonfiction. Ex: WHAT WE SEE IN THE STARS, LITERARY WITCHES. Or maybe something prescriptive and workbook-ish like THE CURATED CLOSET. #MSWL
