I don’t represent children’s picture books, but for the sake of my eight-year-old son, I’m open to chapter books for kids and teens. (He loves the Alex Rider series and I introduced him to old school Gordon Korman!)

My client list is filling up, so I will be even more selective this time. My #mswl includes:
- high concept board, picture, and chapter books (new concept easily understood in just a few words)
- YA contemporary like Jenny Han and John Green (commercial but bends a bit literary).

Some #MSWL additions that I want right now… secret passageways in old houses, fully illustrated chapter books for all ages, Enola Holmes vibes, epistolary gothic horror with multiple narrators (like Dracula), fiber arts (Fiction or NF), STEM books heavy on the M.

#MSWL Graphic novels of all sorts! I’m most drawn in by art that I can recognize as that artist’s in a crowd. I would love to see more GN chapter book and early reader proposals.

#MSWL While chapter books are hard, the market needs more kids of color getting to have all the shenanigans and adventures white kids have been having for forever. I’d love to help non-white creatives break into that space and tell stories that resonate with their inner child.
