My adult #MSWL still hopes for GREAT thrillers & suspense. But IF it's historical, then it must match, re: detectives, the BRILLIANT Leo Wechsler OR Gereon Rath. If modern, it must match Maarten S. Sneijder. So far, I haven't seen a submission worthy of them. Please, send me one.

(5/9) Horror: Haunted houses, curses, ghosts, murder mysteries, send them my way! I want to be scared. I want to be “I don’t want to turn the lights off” scared. I’m okay with some violence but I don’t enjoy gory stories. I’m more interested in suspense, tension, and dread.

#MSWL coming of age stories that flirt with danger, suspense, and death. Juicy adult novels that explore the sinister side of friendships, relationships, and lost innocence (bonus points for alternating timelines). See: THE GIRLS, MY DARK VANESSA, YOU WILL KNOW ME, SECRET HISTORY

YA mystery/suspense:
I want some on both sides of the spectrum: light and dark.

Something in the vein of Sadie, Behind Her Eyes (but YA), and Knives Out. But also something ala On My Block, Outerbanks, or Scooby-Doo, haha.

I love treasure hunts and heists btw!

#MSWL My ultimate wish is for romantic, paranormal suspense—or even a thriller. 😬

Keep me on the edge of my seat while serving up heavy doses of sexual tension in a paranormal world.
