•Feel good adventure stories amongst friends like the Goonies.
•Quests with female protagonists that display bravery and perseverance that’s not in spite of gender.
•Solving age old mysteries that no one thought were real. Bring me prepubescent Indiana Jones.

We love propulsive mysteries and thrillers -- stories that keep you guessing until the end like THE FIREKEEPER'S DAUGHTER, TRULY DEVIOUS, ACE OF SPADES, THE INHERITANCE GAMES, GOOD GIRL'S GUIDE TO MURDER, etc. #MSWL

I love books that challenge societal norms, especially gender norms; great or complicated sibling relationships; small town or midwestern settings; intriguing villains; mysteries woven into other genres #MSWL

In #horror, I'm not afraid to go dark and am open to supernatural of some kind. However, I do prefer things be grounded. Like how Midnight Mass was OUT THERE, but also very realistic? Somehow? I also love the psychological horror that overlaps with #mystery or #suspense. #MSWL

I'd really like to work on a great novel or two this year. I'm looking for propulsive #suspense, edgy #mysteries, and grounded #horror. I love dark books that keep you guessing, with characters that are well drawn and memorable. #MSWL

Mystery/adventure such as Da Vinci Code/ National Treasure. The Holiday but make it a book. Fairy tale retelling. Magical realism. 🌟✍️⭐️

ENGLISH BOARDING SCHOOLS/ MANOR HOUSES. Portal fantasy in the vein of Stardust or Narnia. Pure fantasy -think LOTR. Anything with a tournament. Lighter crime/mystery set in a small English village. Historical romance that Julian Fellowes would be proud of.

I will also take villains who are the MCs, heroes who are made heroes because they’d be too powerful if they were baddies, some murder mystery, himbos & bimbos being best friends, the vibes of Miles Morales leaping off the building, also the vibes of Nick Miller doing anything
