“YA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what I’d like to see.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

“With memoir, I love a story that feels like I’m reading a collection of essays. @JamesTateHill's BLIND MAN'S BLUFF and @m_scribe's WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT, an anthology of essays are two books I worked on that fit in that space.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Honestly, I wish I could be an agent for every author in the world. Keep flooding my inbox and I’ll keep reading as much as I can.

I’m still looking for anything horror. Like seriously scare me. WAY MORE LGBTQ from romance to memoir to coming out. And running!

AFTERSHOCKS by @NadiaOwusu1 is officially my favorite memoir ever— #amquerying writers this is the perfect example of how to share stories with specificity, vulnerability, and, of course, beautiful writing. And I love the world history woven into the protagonist's journey. #MSWL

Finishing Home Baked by Alia Volz makes me hungry (no pun intended) for more memoirs of remarkable people, extraordinary lives and eccentric stories. Especially from diverse backgrounds. #mswl

(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

I read All You Can Ever Know in one long afternoon and like everyone else, I adored it. It's a wonderful memoir about adoption and race and family and should be required reading for everyone. #MSWL more memoirs like this!

In Non-Fiction, I’m always on the lookout for good narrative writing and memoir on the issues we’re facing in the world today. I also have particular interest in people writing about film, music and popular culture.

In adult nonfiction, I'm still looking for untold histories, memoirs with a big hook especially if they are extreme sports or adventure stories, pop science,  cookbooks, & culinary histories. Again, send me your weirds.
