I’d love to see more revenge stories (specifically in the thriller category). It could be a scorned lover, a group of friends avenging someone's death, a sister story, etc. If your character is in their villain era, send it my way! #MSWL

Coming-of-age stories. Child and teen protagonists. Novels exploring childhood, friendship, family drama. Characters realizing how pivotal life moments completely fucked them up. #MSWL

I can’t get enough of: family sagas, female friendships, edgy psychological suspense, closed-setting novels, anti-heroines, smart romances, comedy of manners, found family, genre-blend romcoms, and change-one-thing-in-our-world speculative fiction.

*Own-voices* rep of characters with marginalized and intersectional identities in stories of adventure, romance, friendship, joy, and personal growth. Especially but not exclusively: disability/neurodivergence; queer/LGBTQ+; all BIPIC but esp Black American, Indigenous & Latinx

Although my tastes are eclectic, certain things show up in lots of the books I work on:

Angry girls and sensitive boys
Unlikely heroes
Mysteries, murders and conspiracies
Authentic representation
Fantasy with an agenda
Opposites attract friendships
Finding your true self

I always ask for big emotions in MSs, and right now, I especially want joy. You can make it serious, but I want moments of levity too. Bring me laugh-out-loud humor, swoonworthy romance, delightful friendships, and lots of wonder. #MSWL

I love histories about real, bad@$$, quirky, or hilarious women who defied societal expectations. Come at me with a (well-researched) story about Julie d'Aubigny, Wu Zetian, Cheng I Sao, or Anne Bonny and Mary Read's unusual friendship, anything in that vein.

Similarly, I would love to see a Gilded Age Historical Fiction submission exploring witchcraft and female family/friendship relationships—think Practical Magic meets The Social Graces

I want to see more asexual, demisexual, gray ace, aromatic, and all the ace spectrum rep. More platonic relationships. Best friend romances. No sex, just cuddle romcoms. There just isn't enough. #MSWL

What I do love to see in the YA Contemporary field are thrillers, hauntings that can toe the line of horror without going overboard, rom-coms, friendship break ups, and grandparent relationships. I especially love to see all this with BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ characters. #mswl

I'd love a book club (still commercial) submission that explores the concept of love between friends in a non-toxic way and the impact of those 'breakups' and how people change together over time. It's huge and devastating and so often glossed over. #mswl

Well, the secret's out. YA has crept into my heart through some of my clients so I am opening queries to the rest of y'all. :)

I'm looking for: YA horror (lite), YA paranormal (ghost stories), and YA thriller. Keep it weird and spooky, my friends. #mswl

Friendship stories—break up, make up, fall in love…any of the above, any age category. There DOES NOT need to be a romantic element.
