MG/YA: Fantasy is another first love! Everything from contemporary fantasy to high fantasy & epic fantasy. I LOVE unique world-building!
I'd also like lighter, even funny fantasy where the stakes aren't about saving the world, but adventure & characters. More Hobbit than LOTR.

#MSWL I'd also like to see a paranormal adventure romance set in a culture-rich location. Imagine if Tomb Raider was a cat shifter hunting magical relics. Or if Indiana Jones was a demon hunting the holy grail for other reasons...

- Something “earthy”—be that a lyrical picture book about environmentalism or a MG hiking action-adventure or a darkly atmospheric YA that takes place in a forest or anything in between
- MG and YA with rural settings
- Witches, boarding schools, sister bonds

Associate Editor @StMartinsPress . she/her. Avid dog-spotter and Chicago native. Opinions my own but deep dish is better than thin crust.

#MSWL My narrative non-fiction taste is like obscenity: I know it when I see it. Always have an eye out for pop culture, wilderness and adventure stories, pop psychology, investigative crime nonfiction. If you have the next WE KEEP THE DEAD CLOSE, I want it and I need it.

Editorial director at HMH Books for Young Readers and Etch. I tweet a lot about dogs, and think a lot about dessert. All opinions are my own. (she/her)

Again in MG, I’d love to find more grounded or just slightly speculative adventure stories. Spies, detectives, quest and adventure seekers. I’m a sucker for a good competition!

I'm eager for fun middle grade series, humorous or not -- but definitely heartfelt. Sweeping worlds, sweeping adventures, kids wrapped up with gods and monsters and magic. Bonus points for fun animal (or magical-creature) sidekick characters! #MSWL

Found families in space! I want SF adventure stories with an excellent spaceship crew dynamic in the vein of MASS EFFECT, FORTUNA, and A LONG WAY TO A SMALL, ANGRY PLANET. Paired with a quick pace and a dynamic voice, I never tire of these stories. Bonus points for aliens. #MSWL

Give me a fantasy adventure like KINGS OF THE WYLD that feels like a D&D game. I want a new twist on classic fantasy races and monsters! Big quest energy! Lots of party banter! A wisecracking, charismatic rogue with a heart of gold (not required, but always appreciated)! #MSWL
