If a Hanna-esque thriller/suspense came across my inbox right now, I’d be very okay with that. #mswl

Hey Twitter. Some updates to my #MSWL:

My picture book list is quite full, so I am TEMPORARILY closing to PBs. I remain open to illustrators.

I'm very eager to find: ADULT mystery, crime, domestic suspense and horror/speculative fiction.

Finally, I'm looking for trade length books in the Romantic Suspense, Historical Fiction, Amish, and Women's Fiction genres. These submissions should be agented, but if you're from a historically underrepresented group, my DMs are open for questions. #mswl 4/4

I'd love to see more submissions from authors from historically underrepresented groups for Love Inspired Suspense (bit.ly/3d03y0T). Thrust your hero and heroine into danger right away and keep the threat going. Bonus points for including strong women! #mswl 2/4

In YA: Gothic or horror as long as it’s not too gory. I especially love atmospheric settings and psychological horror/suspense. #MSWL 5/7

Suspense and thrillers where everything seems normal at first and then it builds to something really weird and wrong (ex: A SIMPLE FAVOR) #MSWL

Thanks to a chat with @jennychen_jc, I now have the perfect way of describing the kind of upmarket suspense I want to read:
