A quick #MSWL for picture books:
I always, always love the intersection of family and food - keep me in mind for these!
But I have some specific desires right now in PBs, related to my own disability experience in myself and my family.

today's Stained Page News reminded me how much I love unexpected crossovers (like coding and cooking!), so #MSWL for nonfiction crossovers b/w subjects (esp, food and the environment!)

Something that will forever and always be on my #MSWL is "food books" because I'm still chasing the dopamine rush I got every time I read BUNNY CAKES as a kid and saw the cakes Ruby and Max made. 😋🎂✨

A reminder that I work on cookbooks and I love them!

I love food. I love celebrating it. I love eating it. I love talking about it. All food is good food.

These are most of my cookbooks that I’ve worked on over the last ~8 years.

Pitch me platform driven food books! #mswl

I am down to zero queries & three subs in my query box. (I hope to hit inbox zero by July 1, but time will tell.) Either way, I'm looking forward to opening to queries July 1! Here's a little #MSWL for when I reopen:

#amquerying #writingcommunity #amagenting

1. Food-centric fic & nonfic. I would love to see narrative nonfic deep dives into culinary history & people whose stories haven't been told. Essay collections about food intersecting with culture, politics, social justice. & in fic, MG, YA, & adult fic where food plays a role.

I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl

I would LOVE an #ownvoices story featuring a Black Jewish main character. If there's a lot of food involved, even better. And loud relatives. And opinions. #MSWL
