I’d love to see more crime/detective queries. I’m a big fan of Silent Witness, Vera, Shetland, and Broadchurch! Anything like that would be amazing 🤩 #mswl

I'd love to see more contemporary romance queries. One Day is a good indication of what I'm after, but I could do without a traumatic ending. I always look for a unique hook and a believable relationship. Did I mention a unique hook? I love a unique hook.🙏 #mswl

Women’s fiction: I’m looking for a strong voice and writing that is accessible. I’d love a story that is full of heart and profoundly honest. I’m also keen for darker twists.

Romantasy: I’m looking for a unique hook that really makes a MS stand out! I mostly enjoy darker stories, whether in setting or theme. High spice is best, but romantic tension is fine too. Damon, Stefan and Elena dynamic, anyone?

I'm excited to share an updated #MSWL 🧵 as we move towards 2024

Millennial rom-com: dating apps, zoom dates, and social media – it’s wild out there. I’d love a story that explores how to navigate dating/finding love as a 20 or 30 something. Millennial Bridget Jones please!

If someone sends me a query with Crimson Peak ✨vibes✨I will be a very happy agent. I LOVE gothic romance and all things spooky and monstrous.

Fourth Wing, and Once Upon a Broken Heart.
💀Horror is something I'm exploring more of right now. The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor are the two best comps for me.

😊For YA, I'm looking for JOY and comin of age stories ! Something similar to Heartstopper

I've been seeing some great queries lately! But I've also noticed a few gaps. Here's a brief #MSWL 🧵 for what I'm focusing on right now

✨Romantasy - My forever favourite. I enjoy all the usual themes, but I'm searching for a unique hook. Comps would be One Dark Window, ACOTAR,

Please send me all your spicy (extra spicy, not so much lemon and herb), dark, and magical fantasy romance queries. I'm particularly looking for a unique hook and strong atmospheric writing.

I would love a great rom-com. I loved No Hard Feelings, Ghosted, and The Lost City. Bridget Jones’s Diary is a forever favorite! I would also love commercial fiction in the vein of Daisy Jones & The Six.

Horror: The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor are two of my favourite scary shows. I would love something in the same vein. I'm better with ghosts and monsters than I am gore.
