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.

I don't want queriers to have to wait 5 mths for a response, so this time I will stay open for only about two weeks, lest my inbox overfloweth.

- near future speculative, where Earth is *almost* the same, but changes reflect and comment on our current social, political, and environmental trajectory.
- novels in verse that explore the beauty and darkness kids face daily
- NONFICTION NONFICTION NONFICTION

My client list is filling up, so I will be even more selective this time. My #mswl includes:
- high concept board, picture, and chapter books (new concept easily understood in just a few words)
- YA contemporary like Jenny Han and John Green (commercial but bends a bit literary).

My next #MSWL

Literary “Romance”—I want a deeply thematic & potentially twisted story about complexity of relationships/ love.

HEA ok but prefer not.

Lots of interiority but center around an external happening!

LGBTQ+ yes! But prefer when sexuality is not the main conflict
