When I open for queries on 11/1 I’m crossing my fingers there are craftily written #PictureBooks by #BIPOC authors that are celebrations of joy. I really want to smile and laugh. #mswl

#illustrators, I am here for you! I'd love to see your art, from PB to MG to YA.

I'd also like to see author-illustrated graphic novels. My kids love them. I love them. And I will continue to be an advocate for the fun and creativity and hard work that goes into them. #MSWL

Here is my one and only #MSWL. I need a manuscript about MEDIA LITERACY. Picture book, middle grade, YA-- fiction or non-fiction. Give me a book to start the conversation about media literacy and I will give that book my undivided attention. (and you'll help save democracy)

But I also want narrative nonfiction that isn't just biographies. I want to learn things about the world. Chemistry is cool! Also biology *while cool* can be gross and cool. #MSWL #PB

For picture books, I tend to lean towards a more commercial edge. And humor, with a heart of gold is 100% where my heart lies. #MSWL
