In YA, i still love most genres and everything from light to dark. I love hope and depth and humor and stories that can change lives, whether from joy or empathy and validation. More specifically:

1. Super high concept contemporary and speculative contemporary

I'd love a paranormal or urban fantasy romance where the types of magical beings vary. Use a unique voice and humor. Sookie Stackhouse comes to mind. QueryManager.com/LisaGreenQueri…

I've spent the last month formulating my 2021 #MSWL (agented). I look forward to reading the great projects that this year brings! 1/7

In Adult:

-a big, gorgeous love story that rips your heart out

-voice-driven fiction for millennials and Gen Z that encompasses the social, romantic, and professional dynamics of the generation, preferrably with a light touch or dash of humor #MSWL 2/7

The new book of my dreams is a Brooklyn 99-esque romance with all the things I love about that show (diversity, inclusion, humor, creativity, healthy relationships, etc., etc.) and no actual police work. I NEED IT RIGHT NOW! #MSWL

I grew up watching soap operas, & loved You Had Me at Hola. Would love to see women's fiction based in world of soaps (can be behind the scenes/in front of camera/after leaving spotlight). Something w/ humor and heart but feels authentic & respectful of the industry. #MSWL

3) High-concept YA contemporary or contemporary-with-a-twist, especially if it comes with an irreverent, self-referentially funny voice. Sarcastic or endearingly self-deprecating humor to the front of the line. I love a protagonist who feels like a co-conspirator.

(Memoir continued) I love books with humor and interesting perspectives, and enjoy a big personality or narration to go with the contents of the memoir. I do not want conservative or conservative leaning memoirs. #mswl
