If I could manifest ONE book onto my desk, it'd be a thoughtful look at issues of race and class in the American South...wrapped up in a domestic noir or Tana French-y mystery. A tall order, I know! But one of y'all has to be writing it, right? #MSWL

Would love to see noir detective stories set in almost any other genre but the mystery must be central/taken seriously! #mswl

Huge fan of domestic noir that gets under the skin - I've seen bad mothers by the bucketload but what about fathers and daughters?

#MSWL: A Riverdale-esque YA retelling of a classic, non-murdery tale. But less soapy, more literary, and turn the noir up to 11.

#MSWL: I'd love a noir told from the femme fatale POV, rather than the PI.

Noir-ish neo-cold war espionage thriller in a Resistance-vs-Putin/Trump-like world w/flawed heroes, complex bad guys & sense of place. #MSWL
