Always and forever looking for #ownvoices and contemporary stories that reflect today's world and the issues kids face every day in a powerful way. #MSWL

hello! it's almost my birthday & I would love nothing more than to find my inbox flooded with:
šŸ³ļøā€šŸŒˆ adorable queer love stories for mg and ya
šŸŽƒ spooky & silly mg with lots of magic
šŸŒ funny contemp ya that takes place outside of the US
šŸŽ‚ pb or mg about baking & sprinkles

#MSWL

I follow so many incredible bakers on Instagram because I'm obsessed w/ fancy, colorful, and quirky cakes, and it's making me crave a contemporary #YA or #MG featuring a mc who has a passion for baking. Bonus points if it includes a fluffy romance or baking competition! šŸŽ‚ #MSWL

Specifically, Iā€™d love a contemporary #YA set in Prague (modern day or historical). Bonus points if it includes a love story as beautiful as the astronomical clock tower. #MSWL

Iā€™m always looking for #YA contemporary romcoms written by diverse authors that feature POC and LGBTQ+ characters. The lighter and fluffier, the better! #MSWL

Super specific #MSWL: I'd love to find a fun, high-stakes contemporary #MG or #YA that takes place before or during a hackathon! Less specific: If you have a #kidlit story with witty & tech-savvy characters, please query me. šŸ¤“
