In all formats I'm particularly excited by:
⭐️Original, unforgettable, "sticky" characters—future household names
⭐️Sharp, original humor that shows a deep understanding of its readers—whether goofy, over-the-top humor for middle graders or well-observed sarcasm for teens

I always ask for big emotions in MSs, and right now, I especially want joy. You can make it serious, but I want moments of levity too. Bring me laugh-out-loud humor, swoonworthy romance, delightful friendships, and lots of wonder. #MSWL

YAAS. Jobu Tupaki may be one of the best characters to ever grace the film screen. My wild #MSWL: a smart YA that has the feel of Everything Everywhere All at Once from the POV of Jobu w/the dysfunctional but heartfelt family dynamics, existential angst, absurd humor, & queer rep

Horror! I’m a huge horror movie fan, and am always on the hunt for a project to keep me up all night. Books that recently scared the pants off me: THE HACIENDA, JACKAL, THE HONEYS, and HOUSE OF HUNGER. Does it have a sense of humor a la NIGHTBITCH or “Yellowjackets?” Even better!

#MSWL: #ChildrensBooks send me yr #GraphicNovel projects, from high-concept to literary, or middle grade with visual elements. Something with heart & humor. See Remy Lai's Pie in the Sky as a good comp. Also enjoyed Witches of Brooklyn & Pilau of the Woods as GN comps.

#MSWL: #Lifestyle titles (see Kate Oliver’s The Modern Caravan), humorous or visually-driven projects, (see @NatalyaLobanova's Everyone is Awful), and #business books that read like memoir (Tony Hsieh's Delivering Happiness is one of my all-time faves).

Generally speaking, I'm drawn to social commentary (Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid; Pigs by Johanna Stoberock; Jordan Peele films), and I'm also not opposed to humorous horror (The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix; Suburban Hell by Maureen Kilmer).

In younger fiction, I’m looking for whimsy and fun, but also smart humor with twisted takes and thrilling mysteries. As always, I will sing the praises of The Owl House until the end of my days, but I also just love most animation out now and I would love to capture that in MG
