Hatchet was one of my favs as a kid. It made me feel small and powerful at the same time, appreciate the wide world, the dangers and the possibilities, and opened my eyes to so much more out there and inside myself.
And now there's a memoir...
I can't wait!
I would really love to see more adult projects in my inbox. #MSWL -- especially:
*Underrepresented women in history
*LIGHT fantasy (if House on the Cerulean Sea is a comp-yes please)
*LGBTQIA+ stories (especially joyful ones)
P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary“Joyful novels and powerful memoirs about the adoptee experience, written by adoptees. I can’t stress that enough.” @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl
Still looking for that joyful adoptee memoir. Where are you? #MSWL
✨ Ally is writing a dark academia sports book⛸🌲 @natureofpagesI really wish I saw more ridiculously strong friendships in books. the ride or die friendships, the “I don’t want a future that doesn’t have you in it” friendships, the “I can’t wait for my kids to call you aunt/uncle” friendships.
I fill my books with them and hope it shows 💛

On December 1, I'm opening to queries again. So, here is an #MSWL for #amquerying writers. <3 A note: I am only looking for nonfiction at the moment, BUT for the first time ever, I'm looking for YA nonfiction too! Weeeee!
Okay, question for all ye genies: the best romance or women's fiction novels featuring partners with significant age differences? I'll take any (LOLITA, etc.), but I'm keen on something v. healthy, good, etc., especially where you have a female gifted + precocious. (Into: #MSWL.)
Sarah Cantin @sarahgcantinIn the “there should be a word for this” category: when your partner can see your family more clearly and succinctly than you can, and yet you have context/understanding that you can’t convey to them.
Megan Lynch @lynchmeganAnne Rice meets Emma Donoghue in the most magical, powerful motherhood-as-metaphor novel I've ever read, a story of whether or not life is a gift or a curse: pic.twitter.com/Zzric4Cmnx
