I would LOVE to see ghost stories (I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU by Kara A. Kennedy)! Note, though, that I’m not a fit for other paranormal characters, such as werewolves, vampires, zombies, faeries, etc.

Mystery/suspense – I really like creepy, gothic suspense like A FORGERY OF ROSES. And GALLANT—it feels like gothic, fantasy, & horror all in one! Anything that comps to CRIMSON PEAK is always on my list—creepy manor, period piece, lots of secrets, ghosts, some romance!

I love monsters of any kind in MG, and I’m interested in ghosts! For MG contemporary, I’m interested in all types of coming-of- age with authentic dialogue and lots of humor (always love Chad Lucas’s MG dialogue!).

It's #MSWL day at @TheTobiasAgency! When I reopen to queries, shortly, here are some things I will be looking for: in #MG, I'm still on the hunt for an atmospheric ghost story with universal character themes. Think DOLL BONES or Linda Urban's ALMOST THERE AND ALMOST NOT

#mswl I would really like some old haunted mansions style ghost stories. Particularly thinking James Herbert or Cassandra Khaw's Nothing but Blackened Teeth. The Haunted Mansion bit is key though. I want atmosphere.

Feel free to email rather than wait for me to open to queries.
