I’d love to see more horror in my inbox. It can be adult (or YA). Not slash and hack bloody horror, but the kind that builds psychological tension in a smart and surprising way. #MSWL

I’m expanding into repping more adult projects in genre fiction. I want to see more cozy fantasy, romantic or not, with low stakes, warmth, humor and whimsy. Basically a hug in book form. #MSWL

My full #mswl can be found on the agency website but here’s what I’m especially looking for in 2023:

—Adult + YA RomCom that are FUNNY AF *or/and* Adult Romance w a magic/spec twist
—Suspense/Thrillers (we need more queer and POC rep in this category!)
—MG Fantasy! All kinds!

Oh hey it's #MSWL day! Here's a link to my new shiny page. TLDR: I want adult fiction that stretches my imagination, and connects me back to big chewy ideas in the real world. Fresh speculative fiction, philosophical SFFH, ambitious satires.

I’m technically on vacation but saw it was #MSWL day and wanted to pop in and say that all my recent MSWL posts are still valid.
Also, I would really love more adult projects and GN projects in my inbox. 👀

It's #MSWL Day, so I'll post a few items on my wish list. I'm still eager to find indigenous authors with authentic stories from PB to adult. I'd like more contemporary MG & YA by diverse voices, including LGBTQ+, but not issue books. #WritingCommunity #amquerying #amagenting

In adult romance, my big super-specific ask is for celebrity-centric fiction in the vein of THE VIEW IS EXHAUSTING, which I *loved*, and something like Starstruck on HBO Max/BBC.

I like my thrillers character-driven & atmospheric, like Courtney Summers in YA and Tana French in adult. Voicy YA mysteries with a classic whodunit feel like TRULY DEVIOUS & PREP SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL are also up my alley. I'm not a good fit for commercial action/adventure novels.

I'm only looking for sci-fi in the adult space and prefer distant-future space-set stories. I love SF that is kind-of-sort-of-fantasy, like Yoon Ha Lee & Tamsyn Muir.

In contemp fantasy I am looking for hooky, fresh premises like IF YOU COULD SEE THE SUN & LEGENDBORN in YA, and on the adult side, speculative thrillers like NINTH HOUSE, BLACK WATER SISTER, and MAGIC FOR LIARS.

I will be reopening to queries on the 15th March.

I am having to make a few changes (partly for my workload and partly to make sure I am balancing my list).

The delay also gives me time to finish my remaining fulls before then.

1. I will open for a month only. (By doing it in controlled bursts I can make sure it doesn't overwhelm me).

2. Genres. I will be only opening to a few genres:

Action & Adventure (adult)

Thriller/ mystery: Adult and YA.

Fantasy YA.

Fantasy Romance Adult and YA.
