🍂 realistic teen stories
🍂 graphic memoir
🍂 graphic nonfiction

Putting this out in the world: I love big “look books” like this & I would love to do one by a BIPOC illustrator focusing on a BIPOC community. If you’re such an illustrator & you love character, scenes, & details, hit me up! #mswl

Hey Twitter. Some updates to my #MSWL:

My picture book list is quite full, so I am TEMPORARILY closing to PBs. I remain open to illustrators.

I'm very eager to find: ADULT mystery, crime, domestic suspense and horror/speculative fiction.

Starting today, I am going to open my query inbox just to illustrators.

In the next several weeks, I will open widely, but I want to consider the fulls and maybes I have first and then create a new #MSWL. Until then, I am currently looking for #kidlitart #illustrators.

I recently reread ALMA AND HOW SHE GOT HER NAME and it’s truly one of my all time favorites. I’d love to see more projects in my inbox exploring the things—names, food, places—that connect us with the generations before us. PB (author-illustrator only), MG/YA novel, GN. #mswl
