You know what I’m interested in? Strong queens. I’ve been seeing a lot of heirs to the throne, but I’d like to see a strong queen who’s taking over/ruling in a difficult time. Bonus points if she’s rules with an iron fist! #mswl

Middle grade animal (or animal-adjacent...) (light) fantasy, because I still desperately need something to fill the Wild Robot-shaped hole in my heart. 🤖💖 #mswl

#MSWL These are the kinds of details that build a convincing, contemporary YA world. Teens are intertwined with digital communication, and they're secretive, which means they're going to figure this shit out on their own. So much to mine! Write it true.

If you have middle grade or YA project that feels like #OneDayAtATime with all of that amazing diverse representation, please send it my way. I’ll need to fill the hole created by its cancellation. #mswl

I need more books that use settings *as* characters as well. I love living histories! Places can d/evolve and have arcs of their own. Stories can happen *to* and not just *in* them. And exploring that doesn't have to be pigeonholed as worldbuilding alone.

One of the things good gothic fantasy & claustrophobic scary spaceship stories have in common is that they both do setting-as-character well.

Really, any setting can be made to feel like a character. Creepy castle? Floating city? Jungle that *devours* people? YES.

Anyway—#mswl!

This will come as no surprise to my Twitter followers, given the inexplicably high volume of raccoon videos I retweet: I want/need a picture book about raccoons. #MSWL
