I’m loving all the holiday rom-coms coming out lately, and I would LOVE to see some set around very specific regional holidays?

IE: Today is Sweetest Day for midwesterners (I lived in Michigan for two years, it’s a thing!) and I’d love to see that in a rom-com. #MSWL

Last day of #AutismAcceptanceMonth though in my house it runs all year.

Reminder, that I’m actively looking for stories from neurodivergent folks that celebrate neurodiversity, in my agent life. #MSWL

There’s news coming on some current projects, and I’d love to see more. ❤️

Getting my first of what I'm hoping will be many neurodivergent projects out on submission this week.

Reminder! Joyful, celebratory neurodivergent stories, both fiction + non-fiction, are priorities on my #MSWL.

And please, if you have questions, don't be afraid to DM me.

Good morning! Annual reminder that I would love to work on some short story collections in my agent life. #MSWL

I love writers like Brandon Taylor, Karen Russell, Kelly Link, Carmen Maria Machado…

I signed a new author today with a project I cannot stop thinking about, and all I can say is yes, I am very open to novels in verse. #MSWL

Non Fungible Thoughts @thomdunn

How do you just LOSE moon trees?! cnn.com/2021/04/21/eur…

Give me the novel about a reclusive arborist helping an astronaut locate moon trees and then they end up kissing a lot. #MSWL

Oh. Oh my.

One of my authors sent me an adult rom-com with splashes of ✨FANTASY and MAGIC✨.

Querying writers, please send me stuff like this. I want these surprising genre-blends so bad. #MSWL.

Watching my little non communicative boy use a PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) board to interact is such a joy filled miracle.

❤️

Also an annual reminder that I’m desperate for more books that celebrate neurodiversity in my query box.

If I’m not making books for kids like him, I’m failing at this job. #MSWL

It’s my birthday month (38 oh no), and all I want are joyful neurodiversity stories in my inbox so my son will see more of himself on bookshelves in a few years. #MSWL

Early morning #MSWL tweets, as the toddler has been up since 6.

YA that celebrates neurodiversity, from writers who are (can’t stress that enough) neurodivergent.

Fiction and memoir from (stressing again) adoptees, on the adoptee experience.

Are there any neurodivergent parenting books by authors of color?

I keep looking and I’m not finding them.

If you’re writing one, query me. #MSWL

Had a rough few days, and decided to start @rosellewriter’s latest, Vanessa Yu's Magical Paris Tea Shop.

I swear her magical romance novels are like a soothing balm, and I’d love to work on books like this in my agent life. #MSWL

Also go buy this! bookshop.org/books/vanessa-…
