I gravitate towards books and authors with a clear, definitive voice full of intensity and emotion, and showcase deep meaning and character work through commercial fiction tropes #MSWL 7/7

For all of the above:

-Diverse experiences and marginalized voices are essential.

-Books that uplift women and are intersectional are a must.

-I love both books fueled by rage, as well as books that make me believe in love and joy #MSWL 6/7

In young adult:

-Romance! Rom com all the way through "the universe must have put us together" love.

- voice-driven contemporary set against a big, pivotal point in the MC's life

-psychological horror that has something bigger to say about who we are as a society #MSWL 5/7

-locked room mysteries/thrillers with a big cast of characters

- I like historical-set fiction but only if it is a genre I love (horror, rom com, etc) set in a different time period #MSWL 4/7

-what I'm calling the "rom dram," or romantic drama, with deep emotional conflict, rather than plot-driven drama

-social thrillers and horror w. commercial pacing, but have a deeper level of weight to them about something that occupies the social consciousness today #MSWL 3/7

I've spent the last month formulating my 2021 #MSWL (agented). I look forward to reading the great projects that this year brings! 1/7

In Adult:

-a big, gorgeous love story that rips your heart out

-voice-driven fiction for millennials and Gen Z that encompasses the social, romantic, and professional dynamics of the generation, preferrably with a light touch or dash of humor #MSWL 2/7

(Agented) I really want a YA horror that has larger social commentary at play. Prefer psychological and haunting as opposed to zombies, etc. This has been a dark time of pain and fear and rage, and I want to see that on the page, through horror tropes. #mswl

Since I'm not feeling poetic today, I'll just bluntly say I want a delicious, dramatic, feverish gothic love story. No powerless women trapped in attics please. Thanks! #MSWL

I want a book that truly messes with your perception of reality. Not just a psychological thriller, but a truly, mind-bending, House of Leaves-type book that blasts away all previous notions of what a book can be #MSWL

I'm over suspense that features a man controlling the strings with the central protag overpowered and manipulated by him. Give me your thrillers with dynamic leading women. Show me what suspense looks like btwn friends, btwn sisters. Explore these relationships deeply #MSWL

I want a thriller where the protagonist doesn't ever leave the house because they are a hoarder. #MSWL

Things I am craving:
-Peanut butter cookies
-To watch all the Disney movies in order
-A rich, atmospheric mystery with ties to a big event/time period in history #MSWL
