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.

HEA/HFN required.

"Time periods I like to read about: 1920s-present day. I don't read a lot of historical fiction older than that (like FOUR WINDS, OUR WOMAN IN MOSCOW, and Beatriz Williams in general)."
