Disney has been supplying some of my favorites for ages, but I can't stop listening to the soundtrack so....

#MSWL for MG with #Encanto vibes! And also, obviously, all the Moana and Coco vibes too!

In speculative fiction (light sci-fi, horror, fantasy), I need worlds that I can settle into easily.

Fresh takes on classic tropes, dynamic characters, unique magic systems, atmospheric writing & undeniably high stakes ✨Think: R.F. Kuang, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Rory Power

I’d love to see more crime fiction! 🔪🖤

If it reads like a true crime doc or headline, I’m into it. 🚫 police, gov’t officials, detectives (past or present).

I also love speculative twists and psychological elements like Riley Sager, Vera Kurian, & Tiffany D. Jackson!

Romance has been such a joy to work on, so I’d love to see more! Especially in the YA space—think: Jenny Han, Sandhya Menon, Jason June & Adiba Jaigirdar ❤️‍🔥

And I will ALWAYS love a little bit of romance in my fantasy 🥰

Will never be sick of it, I swear.

New year, time to share a new #MSWL thread of things I’d love to see this year.

I am actively looking for: Adult, YA & MG.

And I am eager to support commercial and high stakes stories featuring BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, disability, and neurodiversity representation.

hi, just tweeting out that since #JulieandThePhantoms was canceled and I've been thinking about it ever since... 😭

#MSWL for a fun YA ghost story with similar feel-good vibes and messages about healing through your grief 💛

OK, can we have more romances where the love interest doesn't have "rippling abs" or "taut muscles," but is instead curvy, warm, soft, and teddy-bear like pls? #MSWL

Thank you to the #amwriting community for your feedback about how to improve my #MSWL.

I've now added specific MSWL & anti-MSWL pdfs on my website. All feedback is welcome, as I think of the best way to add more detail to the "similar to" section.
