…returning to nature & to ourselves.

I will always be drawn to international stories and settings - what is unfamiliar (& uncomfortable!) to a Western reader.

I don’t tend to rep high fantasy, but love magic & a speculative hook.

Every kind of love, please.

#MSWL i'd love to see a modern riff on Bell, Book and Candle!

witches and magic are in

I love the relationships in the Holroyd family. You could do a book on Gill, one on brother Nicky, one on the eccentric and delightful aunt.

create a WHOLE world b/t humans+ magic

#mswl instead of taking down the evil king, give me a linguistic fantasy where the plot is recovering the indigenous magic of a dead language that colonial powers tried to erase

I love a speculative twist and will always be in for a bit of magic. I’m looking for things like Addie Larue, Jane the Virgin, and Extraordinary. I also love a non-horror ghost story, where the ghosts have larger meaning. Give me Hill House and Watch Over Me.

#MSWL In this I'm also including worlds that blend tech and magic, so this can include a mash-up of fantasy & sci-fi too!

Adult:
Upmarket, commercial/literary fiction, book-club fiction, magical realism, rom-com/women’s fiction crossover, historical, mysteries that are fun and light with a genre blend, science fiction (whether five-minutes-in-the-future or epic), fantasy, and romantasy.

I love all the classic quest tropes, intricate magic systems, assassins, courtesans, courtly intrigue (special mention to my all time fave The Goblin Emperor for mastering bureaucratic fantasy)…

#MSWL I'd love a non-Western✨ vampire ✨book.

MG, YA, & Adult all welcome.

For MG: likely adventure/fantasy based w/magic and/or non-Western mythology.

For the rest: fantasy set in a non-Western world w/sharp stakes & a romance.

Could be 1st or 2nd world fantasy.

📚 YA: You'll steal my heart with unique magic systems. Creepy carnivals. Creepy abandoned buildings. New twists on the familiar.

And yes, I'll selectively be looking at queer rom-coms still (because reasons)!
