Rewatching DOCTOR WHO means realizing that my deeply embedded love for well written, story-relevant age gaps and couples who argue, stand together, and communicate effortlessly comes from my endless love for Rose and Nine. Every scene, I swoon #MSWL

If you are writing a Southwestern Gothic, please step to the front of the class. I'm desperate for something dark and unsettling and folkloric set in the stark desert. #mswl

I acquire contemporary romance, book club fiction, suspense, thriller, and mystery in the commercial and upmarket space. Would love to see more diverse suspense and thriller in particular!

I am itching to acquire a lot more this year, so I'd love to meet more agents this spring! If you'd like to connect (or reconnect), please message me (I will do the same!) My #MSWL is also linked in my bio😊

Today's #MSWL !

Multi-character, multi-timeline, multi-theme literary works that feel like short story collections but tie together into a novel.
Stories must have scene arcs, not be merely vignettes.

Eg: OLIVE KITTERIDGE by Elizabeth Strout or THERE, THERE by Tommy Orange

Today's #MSWL item is VERY specific:

I want whip-smart absurdist OR speculative literary fiction that acts as satirical or hyperbolic commentary on the oddly accepted parts of culture and society.
Eg: Kevin Wilson's NOTHING TO SEE HERE or Jessamine Chan's SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS

Finally, as before, I have a "bonus pitch" section in QM. USE IT! If you don't put clear pitches for additional manuscripts, I *will* reject your query. I'm looking to work with prolific, well-rounded authors. Nothing personal, just my preference to keep our options open. #mswl

This short #mswl is NOT an exhaustive list. Please visit my QM page for more details about what I like (and don't like). I created several custom genres to help me organize & read-through my submissions. Do your best to use them appropriately (don't sweat it if you're not sure).

- Mysteries and thrillers that are mysterious and/or thrilling from the first chapter. You can have set-up, but the tone should clearly convey what genre I'm reading.
- Adventures like Pax and Wolf Called Wander
- Clean, tight writing styles. I'm a minimalist by nature.
