Adult Fantasy

Villains being truly and genuinely villainous, romance at the forefront but politics at the core, family dynasties, high stakes adventure, historical dramas, highly aesthetic spaces, thoughtfully done ensemble casts with series potential. Give me more Fourth Wing

20th century European glamour is always a draw, but I'd really, really love an historical novel set outside the periods and places we see over and over.

I'm still hungry for historical! On that front: I can't stop thinking about GREAT CIRCLE, which I waited a criminally long time to read. I'm desperate for an epic family novel told across timelines and generations.

Fantasy is my first love, but I'd really like to see more diverse fantasy drawing from underrepresented voices/myths/folklore/worlds, etc. I'd love to see some historical fiction/fantasy/alternate history! Gothic/Horror! Spies! Heists!

Taking conference pitches this weekend made me realize I have a TERRIBLE NEED for queer historical YA. Not fantasy! I want real queer teens living, loving, and existing throughout the ages. If you have this, agents, I'll take them even though I'm closed to submissions! #MSWL

I would love a historical fiction of the real pirates of the Caribbean, featuring real people mixed with fictional characters that draws from actual events that took place around 1720. Adult, MG, or YA. Dark or light-hearted. #ManuscriptWishList #MSWL

Give me ALL THE ROMANCE! I’m particularly interested in contemporary and fantasy romance, but I’m open to any subgenre, including historical.

I’m a big fan of unlikely pairings, sharp Emily Henry-esque dialogue, and epistolary elements.
