Hello 👋 I have some professional news!

Today is my first day as an agent with @belcastr and I am OPEN to queries! I’m on the hunt for diverse and inclusive kid lit projects and a few adult genres as well!

You can query me at: querymanager.com/query/HannahVa…

One thing that I'm craving, #amwriting, #amquerying friends, is a fantasy (any age range) that is set in a cold wintery arctic world. #MSWL #amagenting

I have some books about people getting their periods for the first time in my query box, and though I did not ask for this, I am HERE for this. Send me your period books! #MSWL

I’d love to see MG (or probably any age range really) with more animal companions. #mswl #amwriting

Paranormal, please! Friends, I blew through the TWILIGHT books SO quickly when they came out. And I think that vampires are making a comeback, and this is a hill I will die on. #YA #MSWL

Additionally, give me body diversity in all genres! I love stories that are not centered on bodies; characters can fall in love, save the world, and do anything in every size and shape! #YA #MSWL

Also, I'd love to get a YA OCEAN'S ELEVEN. Someone write a heist story with teen characters and send to me! #YA #MSWL

#MSWL day is a great day to announce that I'm now ACQUIRING MIDDLE GRADE! What's on my #MG wishlist? Magical realism! Humor! Adventure! Contemporary fantasy!
