Here's a bit of an overview of my #MSWL . Comedies! Hilarious family drama and/or funny situations characters get themselves into. Anything that makes me laugh out loud! If it’s got a comedic element with a strong female, BIPOC or LGBTQIA+ protagonist, PLEASE! #amqueryng

General themes I enjoy: coming-of-age, relationships, sexuality, family, race, class, love and sex. The general drama and complexities of life. Life is messy and I like books that are too!

Also platonic relationships – parents, siblings, friendships. 👯‍♀️ I’m desperate to find a big sweeping novel, something multi-generational like Pachinko or that tracks a relationship through its timeline like Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow.

I also love stories featuring relationships—the good, the bad, and everything in between: friendship and found family, “friend break-up”, complicated family dynamics. And I adore romance (especially LGBTQIA+!), but prefer it as a subplot.

#MSWL i'd love to see a modern riff on Bell, Book and Candle!

witches and magic are in

I love the relationships in the Holroyd family. You could do a book on Gill, one on brother Nicky, one on the eccentric and delightful aunt.

create a WHOLE world b/t humans+ magic

I’m drawn to family stories, especially sibling dynamics and multigenerational sagas. I also love a quirky story with a specific setting or niche community.

On my #MSWL are SEL books, books with authentic neurodivergent rep, funny/quirky books, Christian, holiday themed books that focus on holidays outside of Christmas/Halloween, found family/adoption.

I am DYING to find a diverse ensemble cast series that could comp shows like One Tree Hill, The O.C., or 90210 in my inbox.

Super specific #MSWL I know, but damn I loved those shows with their gossip, romance, friendship, and family.

Agents, I'm looking forward to hearing from you! I'm mainly acquiring in: self-help, psychology, family and relationships, sociology, and memoir, and less broadly, in health and wellness; careers and lifestyle; general inspiration; history; and mind/body/spirit. (12/12)

Just finished Legends & Lattes and my heart couldn’t be warmer, so of course cozy fantasy with found family is shooting to the top of my #MSWL for both MG and YA ✨

For thrillers, I love complicated family dynamics, twisted female friendships, and tense mother daughter relationships.
I like dual POV or time periods- think THE SUNDOWN MOTEL. Big fan of Lucy Foley and Wendy Walker. Would love to see more locked room thrillers as well.

I know I'm closing to queries tomorrow, but authors keep me on your list for a "rowdy family book," preferably middle grade but YA might work too. Think in the spirit of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever or Cheaper by the Dozen. #MSWL
