In my inbox everyday looking for an exciting novel. I'd love an upmarket mystery with complex characters and a hooky crime, or family drama, or something that just catches me by surprise. Here's what I read in 2022. I did not dislike 1 yet. (titles in next tweet) #MSWL

I'm a huge true crime fan and lately I've been obsessed with stories of young men who mysteriously vanish from their cars. There are so many of these stories in the true crime world... I'd love to see a fiction or nonfiction project inspired by this phenomenon #mswl

#MSWL if you have a story set in alternate Victorian/modern England that has elements of secret societies, magical realism, dark academia, or crime, please send it to me. England is preferable, but I'm open to other locations :)

For adult, I would love to see some gorgeous sweeping historical fiction, something to make me laugh out loud, original, high-concept crime/thrillers and cosy crime, and those all-consuming love stories you just have to tell all your friends about💙

I am looking for hooky cosy crime and historical fiction set in/around WW2.

Morally grey, complex and flawed characters are a plus!
