I know this story is at least a year old, but since that society scammer girl was recently found guilty it reminded me: I very much want a YA spin on this type of con. #mswl…

I am just now finding out about the bug heist and I am equally horrified and fascinated. And I kinda want to put this on my #mswl

Remember @beatonna's Hark, A Vagrant! strips about crime solving teens? That's perpetually #mswl for me.

I'm still closed to queries, but just so you know for when I open back up, I'm on a serious conartist kick. Give me your liars, your card sharks, your stolen identities, your heists, your thieves, your most persuasive criminals. YA and maybe MG. #mswl

Still look for a great upper MG page-turning adventure that makes me laugh #mswl

Replying to @bookishchick

I still really really want a YA Orphan Black. Sci-if in a near future, complicated girls and women, great character arcs, found family #mswl

My whole #mswl is now just the video for Dua Lipa's New Rules.

Lately I've got a thing for antagonistic girls in fiction.

This whole thread is now urgent #mswl. Send me all your brilliant, confident, manipulative, scheming, ruthless, vulnerable, bad ass girls.

I am still on the hunt for my ideal YA contemporary. Something with humor and heart, a great voice, and deeply personal stakes. #mswl
