I am open to queries! I need to prioritize current authors, so right now there are very specific types of books that I will be paying closer attention to.

Submission instructions are at dunhamlit.com, and this graphic will hopefully also help you plan when to query me.

Thriller/mystery/suspense: More open here! Though note that I tend to like more focus on character/relationship than is most typical for these genres--not necessarily as plot-driven as is typical--and very literary writing (I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU by Kara A. Kennedy).

I'm still desperately looking for something like THREE HOURS by Rosamund Lupton, both in sense of themes (issues driven suspense) and execution. I just couldn't put that book down and it left me with all kinds of emotions.

Something like that please! #mswl
