📚 More diverse, inclusive sport & competition stories! Send me entertaining stories that make palms sweat & hearts race & inspire us to get out & try something new. Underdog teams, determined solo athlete, and everything in between are fair game. So what counts? #MSWL

i'm desperate for diverse, commercial, soap-y, contemporary YA that is both highly aspirational and has high emotional stakes. basically, if it feels like a shonda rhimes show in book form, with teenagers, I MUST HAVE IT #mswl

I love finding out about cultural/ethnic/racial diversity in Judaism but feel so ripped off I didn’t always know the diversity of my own people. I want to change that for today’s Jewish (& nonJewish) children & teens. Please query me with your diverse Jewish MG & YA novels! #MSWL
