Do you have a well-researched character driven historical fiction that takes place so long ago it almost reads like SF? Transport me away from 2020 please! #MSWL

I’m really craving cookbooks that bring non-Eurocentric food into people’s home kitchens, or cookbooks or food narratives by BIPOC chefs that shine a light on food as the heart of a community or culture. #MSWL

Journalists, do you have a story that spans history and represents a point of view that’s been overlooked? I’m interested in conversations that can make a difference, and specifically interested in stories that touch on parenting, education, abolition, or communication. #MSWL

Since travel is nixed for the time being, I’m looking for narrative nonfiction that takes place in extreme or unique landscapes that are hard to get to – isolated communities, icy planes, or barren deserts – what is life like in such intense environments? #MSWL

It’s #MSWL time! It’s my first fall season at @JLyonsAgency1 so here’s a thread of some of the weirdly specific stories I’m excited to read from querying authors while donning sweaters and drinking apple cider!

Science writers! Bring me your crazy true nonfiction about how the brain works, how AI is evolving, what it will really be like to live in space long term, or how a specific niche science is contributing to our current understanding of neurodiversity. #MSWL

Memoir or novel of a woman surviving in the wilds of Alaska (or some other desolate unpopulated place) – bonus points if she “finds herself” along the way and doesn’t have to fight a bear. #nobears #mswl

A novel that has the same premise as that one episode of Buffy where it turns out she might be hallucinating her reality, from the POV of the “crazy” girl – is her power real, is it not? Is it both?! #mswl
