I’d really love to read a hilarious chapter book or middle grade full of black characters going on silly adventures. #mswl

As promised, here’s a little more info about my #mswl for Labyrinth Road! (Thread)

First & foremost—epic, accessible, *character-driven* MG fantasy & adventure series! I’m excited to build series that could sit well alongside my previous projects like KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES, STORY THIEVES, THE UNWANTEDS, FABLEHAVEN.

I love a sleep deprived/"I've never slept well" hero in a fantasy or adventure story as much as the next editor, but where are my protagonists who sleep a TON and still are tired? Go out like a light and struggle to get up? #mswl

When I open for queries on 11/1 send me your realistic #middlegrade sister stories & brother stories. Show me sibs who are best friends! I’d love a real sibling adventure, and even better if you’re a #BIPOC author. #mswl

Heading into fall (my favorite season!), I am excited to find fantastic new books to fall in love with in my submissions pile. Here’s what I’m eager to see… a #mswl thread:

First and foremost: MIDDLE GRADE. I am extremely hungry for a big middle grade series with stellar world building, cool magic, and a strong emotional core. I love my middle grade with lots of heart that works hand-in-hand with the high stakes adventure. #mswl

One of my dream #MSWL items is an adventure novel that reads like a film like FREE SOLO or THE BARKLEY MARATHONS feels. An edge-of-your-seat outdoors story with near-superhuman athleticism. I’ve spent all of quar hiking & watching ALONE so I’ve had too much time to dwell on this.

For MG fiction, my interests fall heavily on the action-adventure scale, especially stories informed by non-western mythology and folklore. Loud and funny is a better fit than quiet and contemplative. In nonfiction, I love topics that kids—and I—can geek out about.
