1. Adult Contemporary/Romance: I love a gushy romance or a strong feel-good contemporary with a bittersweet ending. I'm a big fan of second-chance romance (bonus points if it's dual timeline). If it's comp'd to Emily Henry or Taylor Jenkins Reid, I want to see it. (2/8)

My goal is to keep y'all in the loop as much as possible. As a new agent, I'm pretty much going to be open to most genres in YA and Adult. Eventually, I see myself opening up to MG further down the road. That being said, I'll do a #MSWL thread early next week (2/11)

I'm hoping for cozy mystery set outside the US and/or diverse. I am open to all Adult Mystery now, but I prefer locked door, cozy, or more traditional mystery over crime stories.
