As a female engineer I am looking for middle grade, YA and PB about girls in STEM. All genres. Who achieve their goals thru bravery and not necessarily confidence. I want some real models not role models for our young women. #mswl #WritingCommnunity

Pitbulls are perfect.

Come to think of it, if someone wants to write me an ode-to-pitbulls picture book called "Pitbulls Are Perfect," wherein (for example) a child explains to the viewer why pitties are, in fact, perfect...Well I'd be mighty happy to see that in my inbox from your agent. #mswl

Alright #writers, here's the deal. I'm largely focused on my adult nonfiction list, a tiny bit of adult fiction, and a very, very select amount of children's. When it comes to PB, I'm personally interested in elevating historically underrepresented voices. More in thread. #mswl

My MerMay #mswl: adorable PB with synchronized swimming mermaids. Adult feminist horror about douchebags who go on boys’ fishing trip and scary mermaid who hunts them. That is all.

I like funny but I like substance. There needs to be a big hook and layers, multiple ways in to what makes it something that will stand out in an overcrowded picture book market. #picturebooks #MSWL
