Assistant Editor @StMartinsPress . Mizzou alumni and Chicago native. Opinions my own but deep dish is better than thin crust.
Updated my #MSWL page! This fall (HOW IS IT ALREADY FALL!!) I'm especially looking for (agented) sharply funny fiction, heartfelt contemporary YA, and diverse thrillers & suspense.
Just finished THE FIVE by @HallieRubenhold—an incredibly thoughtful work of crime nonfiction. In a genre that elevates serial killers to celebrity, it’s imperative to recenter these narratives around the victims, whose lives are too often overshadowed and lost to history. #MSWL
Would love to see more fiction submissions in my inbox!! Particularly a big, emotional family drama with multiple POVs—some faves are LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE, BEARTOWN, and Bill Clegg’s DID YOU EVER HAVE A FAMILY #MSWL
Just listened to the @MyFavMurder podcast about Juliane Koepcke and holy #MSWL. Please give me a thriller in dual timelines about a woman surviving a plane crash in the Amazon and then decades later GOING BACK with a documentary crew
Also, here's a handy #MSWL! Eager for book club fiction, suspense, contemporary YA, and diverse voices. manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/sara… Please note: unless I directly request something and outside of #PitMad, I am only accepting agented submissions!
Just thinking how much I’d love to get a Jewish YA that is NOT centered on the Holocaust. Give me a Birthright thriller!! A Camp Chi summer romance! A Hillel set-up gone wrong!! And the more food descriptions, the better. Please & thank you #mswl #amediting
In all seriousness, very proud to be a part of @StMartinsPress. Agents, please send me your gut-punching book club fiction, upmarket thrillers and mysteries, investigative journalism, pop culture, and true crime!! #mswl #publishing #amediting
Yes I’m aware I’m late to the party, but I can’t remember the last time I fell in love with a protagonist as hard as I fell for Eleanor Oliphant. Send me your brilliant, satirical, messy, utterly lovable heroines taking charge of their own lives #mswl
