And also, contemporary MG that’s full of adventure, humour and heart. There can be fantasy elements but I tend to love real(ish) world settings.

-contemporary fantasy in YA or MG

-YA or MG high fantasy with a unique magic system / based on mythologies underrepresented In literature / that subverts the tropes of the genre

Hey writers! I won’t be able to participate in #SFFpit for long today, but I’m always on the lookout for engaging SFF in the YA and MG spheres.

Here are some specific wish list items and how to reach me: 1/4

-character-driven YA sci-fi, especially if it explores a theme such as our relationship to technology or what it means to be human
-YA sci-fi blended with any other genre—sci-fi horror, sci-fi fantasy (I’d die for a YA Gideon the Ninth!), sci-fi mystery/thriller, etc.

And for MG contemporary, I'm on the hunt for affecting, voice-y middle grade with a hooky premise, friendship, and emotional depth--coming-of-age books that tow the literary-commercial line like Dan Gemeinhart's and Erin Entrada Kelly's books! #MSWL

3/ 2019 #MSWL Agents: 1st and always, I want to curate a list of authors (and books) that accurately reflects the world around me--one that is filled with diverse creators and content--and support them in our shared goal of creating more mirrors (and portals) for kids and teens.

Agent friends! Since I was closed to submissions for a while, I want to declare that I am/have been BACK OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Please send your clients' amazing projects my way. I'm particularly eager to find more YA contemporary and fantasy, plus MG contemporary. #MSWL

One thing I was thinking about this weekend while watching "Only Murders in the Building" is that I'd like more MG set in apartment buildings. It's just a way to force disparate people to interact. Genre doesn't mater. "Attack the Block" is another fun example. #mswl.
