I am probably going to open back up to queries before the New Year but I am going to narrow the genres I'm looking for this time. So please consider this my #mswl list (which I will update).

I will be opening to Action & Adventures.

Books set in extreme environments.

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

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 overπŸš€πŸŒ΄

#MSWL while I absolutely love middle grade horror and dark fantasy, I'm seeing A LOT of it in queries. Would love to see some variety! Sci-fi, fairytale retellings, contemporary, something tragic, joyful stories, series oriented, adventure, etc

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
