Dachshund companions are most welcome (loved Lily & the Octopus, loved Arsenic and Adobo!)

I will go for messy family stories before I go for messy friendship stories. I’m especially keen on complicated love-hate sibling relationships.

I do love historical stories across genres! I would love more stories centering real-life revolutions and recessions. My white whale is any accounts of Jose MartΓ­. And if you take inspiration from Edwidge Danticat pls query me!!

TV Show comps that will always make me pause are The Bear, Peaky Blinders, and Frontier. I would honestly kill for an indigenous POV look at the fur trapping industry, or raw, demystifying looks at the restaurant industry (Top Chef horror would be dope)

In terms of more specific #mswl asks, I am obsessed with vicious, evil, terrifying mermaids and sea creatures. None of that Ariel crap. I want my mermaids with blubber and claws pls.

Right now I would absolutely love to see more Latine/Latinx, Caribbean, first gen, and acespec voices in my queries as those are my lived experiences but am excited to see works from all walks of life!

I’ve been pretty into what I call β€œancestral revenge” books lately: Mexican Gothic, Hide, The Only Good Indians, Nothing But Blackened Teeth, etc.

I am most interested in books that explore and grapple with inheritance, with the world left behind for us, and how characters react and deal with the consequences of their predecessors’ actions.

In all the excitement of the new year I realized that I don’t have my #mswl posted anywhere! If your project fits any of the below, I hope you #amquerying folks will consider me! Query guidelines can be found on the New Leaf website. Keep scrolling for specifics!
