🇵🇭 Filipino immigrant ✨ Editor at Farrar Straus Giroux Books For Young Readers ✨ wannabe outdoorsman @mackidsbooks @fiercereads #WNDB #POCinPub
I have a soft spot for grounded stories with touches of speculative fiction, cheeky, self-aware humor, and elevated horror.
I am *not* the right editor for mss that contain sexual violence, stalking, or predatory behavior, or picture books with animal characters.
--QTPOC romance with banter, emotionally complex, flawed characters, and ✨ intersectionality ✨
--High-concept speculative fiction examining current issues (esp horror & magical realism)
--Sweeping historical fiction about untold movements, events, or individuals
