I’d love to get in more Women’s/General fiction! Here’s my current #MSWL: Multicultural stories; Women in STEM; High-concept historical; Millennial characters/themes; or Queer fiction. Can be a combination of any of the above.
chatting panels w/the brilliant @CarolinePerny and it occurs to me I crave a WOC take on the basic Hulk trope that plays with how complicated it is to be angry as a WOC, especially a BWOC. that gives permission for fury & recognizes that yeah, you're always fucking angry. #MSWL

Stuart Laws @thisstuartlawsAt a cafe, empty tables everywhere, a woman moved all the dirty plates and cups from her table to another, that another woman is sat at. I'm absolutely buzzing about where this is headed.
#mswl x one million ahhhh but seriously!!
Micro SF/F stories @MicroSFFThe emperor woke when a hand was placed over his mouth.
"I evaded all your guards," the assassin whispered, "and outwitted all your traps."
The emperor nodded, and the assassin took a step back.
"Is it five three?" the emperor asked
"Yes, I've won five. Let's swap clothes now."
Olivia Waite @O_WaiteJust an evening reminder that jewelry was a traditional gift demanded by women not because we’re frivolous magpies but because we weren’t permitted to have bank accounts in many times and places and needed shit we could sell for cash in a pinch.
Mind blown. Can someone please write a historical YA about a girl at the height of society who has, like, the BEST jewelry collection ever but is actually secretly hoarding jewelry so she can make her escape from the patriarchy?? #MSWL

For picture books, I gravitate toward quirky, funny, offbeat, and clever stories that center on a memorable character(s) or weave in deeper themes about friendship, mental health, etc. I'd love to find author-illustrators who can capture that sensibility in both text & art. #MSWL
