On the YA side, whether fantastical or realistic, I gravitate toward books w/ high concept hooks and stories anchored in themes of identity, sexuality, & loss & grief. (Grief & sex can be complex labyrinths to navigate, as we know...).

Time for a #MSWL update! When it comes to genre, I’m omnivorous. In #MG and #YA, I’m especially hungry for:

High-concept genre elements combined with literary writing and an exploration of timeless themes.

Genre mash-ups! Give me that...

I would love to get some more adult romcoms that have the high concept hooks and diversity that's been happening in YA romcoms! My adult list is still very bare and I'd love to flesh it out more with some new writers and projects. #mswl

I'm not the right agent for fantasy and sci-fi, but I am not opposed to novels with a slight speculative twist. I'm interested in high concept love stories with a magical or techy element.

As any good fantasy nerd, I love fantasy. In MG and YA, but I am picky nowadays. So it has to feel different. But give me high concept stories. Give me beautiful writing. Give me morally complex characters. #MSWL

#amquerying writers: I'm really in the mood for high concept (i.e. emphasis on plot) romances/women's fic with HEA, especially stories where the romantic interest is perceived to be the obstacle to the protagonist's goals and we get all that delicious tension 😍 #mswl
