I'm binge-watching #Outerbanks this week, and would LOVE LOVE LOVE a YA mystery / adventure featuring a diverse group of friends and of course, heaps of romance. #mswl

Woohoo! We’re living in uncertain times, but I’m still acquiring and editing books and excited to read all your future submissions. ;) With that said, here’s my #MSWL . . .

IN GENERAL:
- Mother / daughter relationships
- Diverse stories by diverse creators
- And of course, stories that I don’t even know I want. I love to be wowed. (And proceed to ramble about how much I love something to @GraceKendallLit) 😉❤️

PICTURE BOOKS: thoughtful, uplifting pbs that make me want to cry and also read to every child I know.

Can't stop watching #FourWeddingsAndAFuneral miniseries and now I really want a YA version: diverse, tight-knit friend group, romance abound, lots of drama with just as much heart #MSWL
