I really love elephants.

If you are an illustrator with an elephant picture book, hit me up. I’d love an elephant book of an elephant living its life in wild. Not living it up in the big city Babar-style. (Also less colonialism) #mswl

It looks like there are a bunch of trans kidlit writers coming out with books in the next couple years, which is great, but...I'm not sure if there are any trans women? Which is the opposite of acceptable.

My client list is super queer but I am definitely on the lookout for stories by trans women, both in fiction and non-fiction! We need these stories. I represent all ages, but primarily focus on childrens, picture books through YA! #mswl

Everyone is looking for non-fiction across all ages PB-YA. I would love to find some great MG and YA narrative non-fiction or memoir. Untold stories and POVs throughout history or STEM! #MSWL

Agents! I desperately want fun non-fiction STEM-focused picture books. Open to biographies, too! #MSWL
