Founder & Literary Agent at @ASHliterary . Dogs & books, mostly. Never knowingly out-lipsticked. Views my own. She/her. It's Alice, never Ali. No DM queries.
Across all ages I want the unhinged adventure energy from Pirates of the Caribbean 2, specifically the mill wheel chase which remains one of my favourite sequences. #mswl

🎄 Alice S-H 🎄 @alibelleHello! Happy 2022! I will be back at my desk tomorrow morning and am excited to dive into what’s already shaping up to be an exciting year, over 300 (!) assistant applications, AND I’ll be opening to queries. Ahead of that, let’s do a #mswl thread.
I’m looking across picture books (author-illustrator only) to YA including graphic novels. I love romcoms, friendcoms, adventures and intriguing magic. I am not a fit for most horror, sci-fi, anything to do with emergencies on planes or the pandemic, or animal POVs. #mswl
I’m really craving joyful and funny stories at the moment. Would love to see more in my queries, particularly from marginalised voices. Romance, friendships, adventure, all with a side of LOL. #mswl
Really feeling in the mood for some fantastic MG.
- Weird and wonderful worlds
- Joyous contemporary stories
- Epic adventures
- Strong friendships
Looking across novels, highly illustrated (particularly author-illustrator created) and graphic novels.
In 2018 I REALLY want some brilliant MG, tween and clean teen. Great voice, strong friendships, adventure, and a brilliant story. Let's chat if you've got something up your sleeve. #amwriting #mswl madeleinemilburn.co.uk/contact/submis…
