Triada US Literary Agency
Literary Agent @TriadaUS | Author of Books for Young Adults | Check my website for book info & query status. I love dogs like it's my job. She/Her
Things I want to see more of:
--shorter MG and YA
--humor (not necessarily as a genre, but as a feature!)
I’m not participating in #MoodPitch because it’s very hard to tell if a premise will appeal to me from a picture. But if you would like to query me and your book matches my #mswl, would love to hear from you.
Send me your f/f romcoms, you cowards!
And by cowards I mean brilliant authors I desperately want to hear from 😂 #mswl
I open to queries on Friday 4/1! I have a full manuscript wishlist you can see on the #MSWL website, but here are the items I'm looking for in particular:
--Adult suspense & RomCom
--YA contemp w/ a BIG commercial hook
I look forward to hearing from you!
shan horan 🎷 🐛 @shanhorandrawsI really don’t want to do a slice of life comic about my disability and hearing aids, I want to make a comic where a girl gets new hearing aids that causes dimensional shifts and summons monsters by accident due to a magical frequency setting in them. LOL
Oh shit #mswl
Lauren is CLOSED to queries @laurenspiellerQUERY UPDATE: I am reopening to queries on April 1, 2022! I'll be using Query Manager going forward, so stay tuned for submission info!

You can also search my @ + #mswl, and see some specific wishlist items. Here are a few to get you started...
Jhanteigh Kupihea @jhanteighAre there historical novels about the Black elite in the Gilded Age? The HBO show offers some tantalizing glimpses but I’d love a story where this is the focus
Oh hi #mswl
Chelsey Emmelhainz @LitAgentChelseyRandomly remembering the @AMorbidPodcast Listener Tales ep where a girl who lost her parents thought she heard them calling to her one night from outside but when she went to open the door, her mother's voice, clear as day, says from behind her, "No baby, that's not us." 😱
I am still waiting on a poison fantasy, FYI. #mswl
I am finally reading CIRCUS MIRANDUS and it is heartbreaking and wonderful. When I reopen to queries I would love to find a MG this emotional and whimsical. #mswl
Kiki @kiananguFirst on my #mswl: I want an f/f YA contemporary centering a black girl or girl of color who isn't confused about anything other than How To Get The Girl. A 2015-now voice.
Kiki’s whole #mswl is ::chef’s kiss::
I’m watching The Spiderwick Chronicles and WOW I would love to rep a book like this. Holly Black is a genius. #mswl
🎄✨ Alix E. Harrow ✨🎄 @AlixEHarroweverybody loves a hyper-competent protagonist, but what about the hyper-INcompetent?? give me the bumblers, the failures, the frauds and fuckups. the arthur dents and gideon the ninths. an absolute doorknob stumbling through a tangled plot they only dimly grasp?? relatable!!
Netflix @netflixTired of his family always asking why he’s single, Peter brings his BFF Nick home for the holidays, making everyone wonder if their connection is more than platonic.

Susan Burdorf says buy Parting the Veil @sburdorf@laurenspieller What is something you are seeing a lot of as an agent that you wouldn’t mind seeing more of?
Im seeing a lot of diverse voices and I hope they keep on coming!
Also murder girls. #askagent #mswl
Jordan Ifueko says REDEMPTOR available NOW @jifuekoFor all the progress we've made in YA fantasy female representation, we can't seem to get over the misogynistic trend of protagonists having to disdain stereotypically feminine things in order to be "Protagonist Material."
Give me high fantasy Elle Woods, please.
GIVE ME HIGH FANTASY ELLE WOODS PLEASE #mswl
Writers, quick reminder that I no longer represent picture books! Please make sure you are looking at my manuscript wishlist (on the agency website!) before querying. #mswl
I’m opening to queries in 3 hours (technically).
I have a full wishlist (see pinned tweet), but here’s one thing I’d LOVE to see:
Upmarket Adult Horror. #mswl
