(Memoir continued) I love books with humor and interesting perspectives, and enjoy a big personality or narration to go with the contents of the memoir. I do not want conservative or conservative leaning memoirs. #mswl

(Romance continued) I can’t bare to read dated ideals of partnership, relationships, femininity, and masculinity. I DO NOT want books where the characters participate in sexual acts without consent and/or while heavily intoxicated. Consent is key and a requirement.... #mswl

(YA/MG genre continued) Like with contemporary, I am especially interested in queer, disabled, and BIPOC protagonists, especially when the books are not issue driven. But above all give me a good, page turning adventure. #mswl

I am open to queries for all ages, fiction and nonfiction, for graphic novels, but especially love when a book has strong themes of love and/or friendship, and is extra queer. #gn #mswl #queer #lgbtq

For graphic novels, I like a diverse cast of characters, placed in nearly any genre or location. I love art that challenges traditional styles and is easily recognizable as belonging to a particular artist. #gn #mswl

For all the books I work with, I prefer to work with queer creators and BIPOC creators, and strongly encourage those creators to send me their work. Regardless of genre, age, subject, I like lighthearted, emotional, hopeful, adventurous reads. #mswl
