I'm looking for #middlegrade and #youngadult stories. I like realistic contemporary; magical realism; well done retellings of fairytales, folklore, legends; love stories; most anything feminist af. I don't like horror, thrillers, murder mysteries, or anything super scary. #MSWL
Also, video game competitions and maybe even cons in MG! Dungeons and Dragons too? Something nerdy and feisty and showcasing kids who aren’t afraid to be who they are and ROCK. THE. WORLD. With their nerdiness. #MSWL
I’m not a cooking manuscript person, but I AM a sports person. Baseball. Dirt bikes. Paintball. Dance. Gymnastics. Girls playing in boys sports. Anyone have a female quarterback in MG? Maybe The Sandlot but for a girl? #mswl
I have a lot of YA in my box. You know what I’d love to have more of? MG (fantasy, sci-fi, and contemporary) and Adult Romance! So a few #MSWL for these two age ranges are to follow! ❤️
Yes, we need dark stories in MG/YA because kids need to have their problems/struggles acknowledged. But please remember to infuse hope. I want less focus on the trauma/suffering and more on successes and healing. Marginalized kids need to know they deserve happy endings #MSWL
Time flies when you're having fun! In my first 6 months of agenting I've built a client list I'm SO proud of. Here's an updated #MSWL (for the next 6 months & beyond!): author-illustrators, slice-of-life chapter book series, girly middle grade (all genres), and contemporary YA.
Opening day is this week so here’s your regular reminder that if you have a baseball themed YA/MG/women’s fiction/romance PLEASE send it to me. #mswl (and I’m especially interested if it deals with MiLB!)
I love girls with hard outer shells and soft, gooey centers!
Still looking for MG--found families, generational stories, fantasy, friend gang adventures like STRANGER THINGS or THE GOONIES, siblings, and besties growing apart.
I would love a story (I'm leaning toward middle grade) where a student takes on the school dress code. Dress codes are notoriously discriminatory (both sexist and racist) and I would love to see that tackled in fiction. #MSWL
