And also, contemporary MG that’s full of adventure, humour and heart. There can be fantasy elements but I tend to love real(ish) world settings.

#MSWL I would love a story about viruses (as long as it's not coronavirus- I need some escapism).

I would also love a book based around a volcanic eruption or another natural disaster. But with the focus on disaster management and the action/adventure side of things.

I'm usually an all sci-fi/fantasy, all the time kinda editor.

BUT...

Right now I would *kill* for an OUTER BANKS-esque YA⁠—a soapy contemporary adventure/survival story, particularly one with a strong focus on class divide...

Agents, hit me up! #mswl

Would really love to read some heartfelt or adventurous MG stories that are intentionally on the shorter end to be accessible to reluctant readers. #mswl

New specific whim to add to my #MSWL since mention of it just gave me a mini homesick twinge: I would love to see some kind of adventure that takes place at Pike Place Market. It still feels like a magical place to me today and did even more so when I was a kid!

And on the middle grade and YA side, I want funny, I want adventure, I want completely new, never-seen-before characters and settings, I want high-concept romances, lots of friendship and heart, just phenomenal stories and journeys all over🚀🌴

MG:
- Adventure stories with strong friendship groups, think City Spies or The Last Day of Summer.
- Fantasy in the vein of Tristan Strong, or Aru Shah.
- Horror, horror, horror! Creepy, crawly, funny & subversive. Think The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place (4/6) #mswl

Adult: Narrative nonfiction/memoir about food, Southern culture, adventure, extreme sports, journeys, science/medicine, from perspectives we have not seen before/enough of & whose narratives tackle bigger-picture subjects alongside personal narratives.
