Still looking for a YA rom-com that’s incisive & frothy, whether it’s about partners or a novel where someone falls in love with all the many facets of themselves. A falling-in-love-with-yourself story would be amazing! #mswl

Will always want MG that gives characters (and readers) the space to discuss the BIG questions on their minds. #mswl

DID YOU KNOW I’m interested in adding magic and light fantasy to my MG list? In the vein of the funny, contemporary realistic books I love to publish with a dash of magic to alter the world we think we know. #mswl

For picture books, I’m looking for narratives that center joy, humor, silliness, curiosity, and imagination. #mswl

Top of my list: more family capers! Stories that celebrate the messiness & complexity of family systems & how they shape our worldview. I adore a well-drawn, offbeat family as an ensemble cast. #mswl

We're back from break, which means agents are open to queries & editors are looking for projects to acquire! I’m excited for the beautiful, memorable PB, CB, MG, & YA manuscripts I’ll get to read & consider in 2020. Adding my #mswl to the mix!

An essay collection I <3 is described as "aggressively colloquial & achingly poetic." That's what I'm looking for in all novels I edit #MSWL
