I'm also a true crime watcher/reader/consumer...one does not grow up in Des Plaines, IL and not know one's serial killers...so send me those wild ripped-from-the-headlines stories. #mswl

I love books with a great Oh Shit moment, and I'm not afraid of grit and gore. Really, a person can only feel so bad about the things they do to fictional characters. #MSWL

Carlisle Spiderwebber @carliebeth · Sep 25

More than anything else, I want a book to make me feel something. I'm up for all kinds of characters and stories, but it's more important that I'm swept into their story. Scare me! Make me laugh! Make me stay up late turning pages. #MSWL

#MSWL Lately I seem to be watching a lot of TV centered on brothers (Prison Break, Mayans M.C., Supernatural, etc.) so I would love to see a brothers book. Or a bromance. I like sister books, too. I have two of them. (Sisters, not books.)

For #MSWL day, here's my current list: I am always looking for high-concept commercial fiction for MG, YA, adult. Favorite genres are horror, mystery, suspense, thriller, and contemporary.

In honor of the upcoming season of @MayansFX I'd also love a ms with crime and motorcycles. #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

I'd love a ms that could be a Reese Witherspoon book club pick: contemporary, some darkness, women centric, greater than the sum of its parts. #WishlistWednesday #MSWL

I saw Psycho on the big screen tonight and it makes me think 1: I want more human horror and 2: I also want unhealthy mother son relationship books. Demons I get. People are crazy. #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

I want a book that turns the idea of "you are responsible for other people's actions" on its head. Because I feel like I hear it so much. #MSWL #WishlistWednesday

I love domestic and law enforcement thrillers but do not want espionage. #mswl

24/7/365 I welcome #ownvoices. I welcome all and would especially love stories by&about people of color, with disabilities (esp invisible), who have mental illness, who are LGBTQ, or who are economically disadvantaged #MSWL #wndb

Another thing Rhimes does well is create characters where you think, "This person is terrible and I can't wait to see what they do next." I love to read those. #MSWL

Carlisle Spiderwebber @carliebeth · 12 Sep 2018

Shonda Rhimes is my Patronus, and I love the way she tells stories. She makes you care about characters quickly and puts in lots of OMG moments. Send me those books. #MSWL

Carlisle Spiderwebber @carliebeth · 12 Sep 2018

I'm a true crime junkie and love crime stories with lots of twists and turns. #MSWL

Here's my agent brand summed up: Blood & guts and pink & sparkly. #MSWL

I am only interested in SFF if the audience is YA or MG #MSWL
