TV has a new kind of heroine: The Latina genius. Here's why it matters latimes.com/entertainment-…

1000% seeking MG (& YA & GN) w/ similarly strong, memorable Latinx leads (genius is not a specifically-required trait, but they *do* need to have agency, fresh/compelling story arcs, & be buoyed by masterful writing from creators who share the main character’s identity). #MSWL

Selling graphic novels for kids/teens is giving me great JOY lately (lots of 'em I haven't even been able to tell y'all about yet, Twitter, b/c Publishing Is Slow). If you're a cartoonist/graphic novelist making deeply true or wildly creative or just plain FUN work, gimme! #MSWL

Things I’d love to find in my submissions folder in 2019: a (YA, I think?) graphic novel-style biography of Selena by a Latinx author or author-illustrator. #MSWL ew.com/tv/2018/12/11/…

Stepped inside @BankStreetBooks mere moments before the downpour began & well, there are worse fates than waiting out a thunderstorm in a bookstore. ⛈📚⛈

Update: read some books. ☔️📚
Related P.S. Standing #MSWL request for all your kids/MG/YA graphic novels! Illustrators, authors, and/or author-illustrators are all welcome. (I’m probably not the right agent for adult graphic novels/comics, tho.)
