Finally, the thing I didn't know I wanted. I have found that several times in this past year and it has been absolute delight. My clients' creativity always outpaces my own imagination, and I love to be surprised by a book. If it's middle grade of YA, try me! #MSWL

And middle grade contemporary or realistic -- with or without a twist of magic (a la WHEN YOU REACH ME) -- will always have my heart. #MSWL

I'm eager for fun middle grade series, humorous or not -- but definitely heartfelt. Sweeping worlds, sweeping adventures, kids wrapped up with gods and monsters and magic. Bonus points for fun animal (or magical-creature) sidekick characters! #MSWL

The Olympics have reminded me. I always want GIRLS in sports. Especially in #MG. #YA okay too. Wacky teams are even better, like "the Breakaways". Maybe the kid isn't "good" but really likes it anyway? Just spitballin'. #mswl

Anyone have any middle grade with LGBTQ+ main characters where coming out isn’t necessarily the point/focus of the story? All genres! #mswl

I’ve been in a bit of a reading funk for a while, but I just devoured half of @dakadh’s HIDE AND SEEKER, & y’all! This is what I mean when I say I want scary MG! It is not gently spooky; it is visceral! It’s scary! It’s the book my morbid childhood self would’ve loved! #MSWL

As a female engineer I am looking for middle grade, YA and PB about girls in STEM. All genres. Who achieve their goals thru bravery and not necessarily confidence. I want some real models not role models for our young women. #mswl #WritingCommnunity
