Happy to see romance/fantasy/historical or other genres here! Would love boarding school settings, big friendships/staked adventure!

My MSWL can be found on, well, MSWL: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/zachary-honey/

In short: I'm still in the thriller game. Looking for rural set thrillers, mysteries, select horror and select historical fiction. Bring it on!

Here are the main differences in my MSWL from last year:

-In the MG space, I'm only now open to upper MG (protagonists 12+)

-Open more to contemporary fantasy, less to genre fantasy

-Open less to PBs with animal casts

-Narrower parameters on historical and dystopian

Historical: I prefer stories stories set in lesser-told times in history that feature underrepresented perspectives and have a human-interest element alongside the education (HER REBEL HIGHNESS by Diana Ma).

Historical and dystopian: I'm open to works set up to 100 years in the past or the future. I also learned in my first year that I don't tend to connect with projects set farther away in time.
