Just finished reading Lizzy Dent's debut THE SUMMER JOB. Loved the read! Great combo of summer fun, romance and comedy, but also warm and well developed characters. #Writers, send me manuscripts like this! #mswl #amquerying #literaryagent

Just finished reading THE SWITCH by Beth O'Leary and thoroughly loved it! Just the right amount of heart, humor and fun with a tearful (in a good way) ending. Send me something like this, writers! #mswl #amquerying

I'd also love to see proposals that tackle the very real problems young people face today - like school debt, stresses of modern parenting, and challenges of finding meaningful relationships #MSWL #nonfiction #personalfinance #studentloans #relationship #parenting

I'm a huge foodie - so I'd love a unique cookbook, foodie memoir, or exploration into the origins of a cuisine. "Hungry" for these! #MSWL #Cookbook #nonfiction #memoir
