GIFT BOOKS
Don’t forget me for fun gift books that you'd impulse-buy (like THE COMPENDIUM OF MAGICAL BEASTS), concept-driven photography books (like THE ART OF CLEAN UP, or a devotional with a good hook (like KNIT, PRAY, SHARE)! #MSWL

ADULT FICTION
I’m looking for pageturning thrillers, book club fiction that is engaging and accessible, but still layered and thought-provoking. (You *might* call that “the intersection of commercial and literary.”) Think Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’d also LOVE hooky rom coms. #MSWL

YOUNG ADULT (PT. 2)
Aside from graphic novels, I am still in pursuit of a magical-yet-quiet mermaid novel, so my inbox is a safe cove to any mermaids that would like to swim in. ✨🧜🏼‍♀️

MIDDLE GRADE
I really love finding a good magical MG novel, but I’m open to a wide range here. Voicey contemporaries, mystery, magical realism/contemporary fantasy, graphic novels, historical fiction, verse, epistolary. When in doubt, send it my way! #MSWL

Since I’m now back open to queries, I’d love to share a bit more about what types of projects I’m currently looking for. Buckle up for a #MSWL thread. 💜

PICTURE BOOKS
In the PB space, I have 3 top priorities:

1. Stories by BIPOC creators in general, particularly family narratives. I love falling in love with a new fictional family!

2. Humor! I need a good laugh. Kids do, too.

3. MAGIC! Send me magical stories!!! ✨

I’m on a serious hunt for a funny, commercial middle-grade mystery series a la Stuart Gibbs. Sharp characters, a strong voice, and neat plotting, pretty please. #MSWL

I would love to find a suspenseful YA mystery/thriller that plays with form, chronology, or narration. It’s is a great genre to play around with social constructs, too, and I love subversion. (Think: Gillian Flynn) #MSWL

Intersectionality is really important to me, and I’d be very excited to see all of the below featuring characters that are not straight or are not white (or both). #MSWL

And I gotta tell you, I’m in the mood for happy endings or ambiguously hopeful ones, at least. I know I'm not alone. #MSWL

Generally speaking, I’m a voice-first reader who is looking for escapism and/or laughter, boundary-pushing, and writers brave enough to flip conventions on their heads. Surprise me! #MSWL
