If you’ve got a middle grade or YA high-concept fantasy where the diverse cast of protagonists try their best to be good and kind in the face of evil, like in THE DRAGON PRINCE, my inbox is open! #mswl

More specifically in MG, i love a great, accessible voice and humor across the spectrum, but also more serious literary stories. MORE specifically:

1. Madcap adventures in any genre

It’s my last weekend to get caught up before i open to queries on April 12!

I’ve responded to almost all outstanding queries (email me if you’re still waiting--i missed it) but still catching up on requested fulls (please keep being patient)!

#mswl ⬇️⬇️⬇️

First thing to note is that I only represent MG and YA. I love every genre from light contemporary to high fantasy and everything in between. I don’t represent artists or graphic novelists and don’t typically represent verse.

#MSWL Middle Grade Mystery w/a girl protag! Think THE INHERITANCE GAMES but for middle grade (not that exact concept; I’m just giving an example of 🔥-high-concept mystery). Fast plotting. Short chapters. Chapter cliff hangers, pls. Commercial but some emotional nuance too pls!

• gothic and horror in MG, YA, and Adult that haunts you with its writing as much as the subject matter (not one for gratuitous gore)

• contemporary fantasy with fresh hooks, strong character dynamics, immersive worlds, & romance subplots.
