Happy Oct! I just updated my queryamy.com Querytracker page to accept fiction! I am looking for horror, paranormal, fantasy, historical, thriller, adventure, and a few other tidbits. Check out my page for genres and I look forward to reading your stuff! #MSWL
5. When it comes to Upper MG, I enjoy adventures with pirates, witches, ghosts, animals that can communicate, an underlying moral lesson learned by the main character, strong friendships, and stories of courage, overcoming obstacles, or shining in the face of adversity.
I will be open to MG, YA, and Adult.
MG - all genres, adventurous and diverse stories w/ high personal stakes, coming of age
YA - all genres, esp. fantasy! Fast paced, lush world building, clever voicey protags, trope-filled!
Adult - LGBTQ+ Romance & Horror
My bookshelf is 50% character-driven sff/speculative/spooky, 50% realistic contemporary/historical (coming-of-age romance, mystery/thriller, action-adventure, and verse novels), mostly by BIPOC, queer, or traditionally underrepresented folks, & my taste very much reflects that.

YA and Middle Grade Fiction
Light-hearted, action adventure, character driven, coming of age books that can tackle big themes and doesn’t shy away from important topics. Books with romance but are romances. Thoughtful stories about character over spectacle.
Villains being truly and genuinely villainous, romance at the forefront but politics at the core, family dynasties, high stakes adventure, historical dramas, highly aesthetic spaces, thoughtfully done ensemble casts with series potential. Give me more Fourth Wing
