In both YA and Adult/NA I want plot forward books, generational stories, female-driven, complex families. Magical realism, especially when linked to Hispanic origins.

I'm really keen to see some more cosy fantasy submissions in my inbox. A hug in book form please. I want characters you would die for by the end, kindness, warmth, platonic friendships, found family, love in all it's forms... #MSWL

Hyper-specific I LOVE: Ensemble Casts; Found family; QPR (queerplatonic relationships); Time travel/multiverse jumping; witch covens as femme solidarity; Non-traditional sports (roller derby, parkour, pro wresting); Tabletop RPGs (and it doesn’t just have to be D&D!)

YA and up: Family dramas that make you LOL or weep, no in between; Cute romances; kids trying to find their people and find themselves on the way; All sorts of spec-fic; all kinds of horror; cyber/solar-punk, with an emphasis on the punk; books that will radicalize kids

Stories where the protagonist builds their own community/family. 🫢🏼

Books that will radicalize teens/kids. πŸ“’

Truly escapist fantasy with a world I become absolutely obsessed with! 🀯

Experimental (but not tooooo gimmicky) storytelling that just works! πŸ‘πŸΌ

Looking for #YA and #MG with big, complicated family dynamics like #Succession, but kids, think: dramedy. Please though, nothing with tons of POVs #MSWL

A funny, heart-warming, layered family drama with an ensemble cast that clash socially, politically, or culturally etc. and has an interesting setting - like a Pakistani Muslim husband and an English Catholic wife who own a fish & chip shop in Salford with their seven children...

Two specific #MSWL items that will be on my list when I reopen to queries:

2, fiction that explores the unique friendships between gay men and lesbians

I love YA that in its surface is about monsters or magic but is actually about family or community or growing up #mswl
