In sci-fi and horror think Love Death + Robot themes like Zima Blue, Ice, or Jibaro. I love a blend of culture, punkfuturism, anticolonialism, humor, and a pinch of weirdness.

In middle grade, I’m always hungry for action, adventure, magic, and humor. It can be fantasy or contemporary, or a little bit of both. Give me your fresh takes on magical school settings or just fun friendship stories filled with hijinks. #MSWL

I’m expanding into repping more adult projects in genre fiction. I want to see more cozy fantasy, romantic or not, with low stakes, warmth, humor and whimsy. Basically a hug in book form. #MSWL

I'm notoriously bad at punch list #MSWL stuff. But I really do read for FUN. I like characters I can root for, surprising plots, fully-drawn worlds, humor and wit. I don't like depressing/disturbing stories, or issue-driven novels.
