Still seeking that perfect MG mystery! Bonus points for a twist on a classic.

Thinking of sending me your picture book biography? I prefer unconventional narratives with lots of illustration potential. 😊

P.S. When I say I'm looking for historical fiction from little-known times and places, I mean it. World War II? Roman Empire? Western Europe? Nope, nope, and nope.

How about Africa or Polynesia? Far Eastern or South American countries pre-colonization or Western contact? #MSWL

I would ❤️ an MG mystery/ghost story set in Cassadega, FL. #MSWL

I would love a good mystery with a diverse detective that’s not set in another country... #MSWL

These are the picture books I’m looking for. Everyday stories with diverse main characters. I would have repped her book. #MSWL #mirrors&windows

I would love a modern day From the Mixed Up Files set somewhere other than NYC / Museum. #MSWL
