i want stories with big hooks that are stuffed with YA tropes πŸ₯° and center BIPOC. i'm a big fan of stories about "lasts" (the last day of school, the last summer before college, the last dance, the last chance) #mswl

i'm desperate for diverse, commercial, soap-y, contemporary YA that is both highly aspirational and has high emotional stakes. basically, if it feels like a shonda rhimes show in book form, with teenagers, I MUST HAVE IT #mswl

i'm looking for a YA that gives me the same feeling i get when tom holland lifts up his arms and is drenched in water at the exact moment rihanna sings "gonna let the rain fall" (1:29 for reference). in other words, total joy.

agent friends! watching bong joon ho make history last night πŸ‡°πŸ‡·πŸ₯³πŸ’• has restored my faith in the power of creativity

so here is my 2020 YA #mswl. let's make stories together & continue to strive towards a better world that offers mirrors, windows, and doors to all young people

after a full week of being in bed with a fever, cough, body aches, and chest pains i'm finally coming out in the other side and ready to do something other than watch the office...

agents, check out my #mswl and ✨PLEASE✨send me those YA submissions. i am R E A D Y to read.
