I've also updated my #MSWL page, and am particularly hungry at the moment for mysteries, suspense, and thrillers written by BIPOC writers and featuring main characters of color. Recent faves: AGE OF VICE, THE BANDIT QUEENS, THE VERIFIERS. (2/

6) For YA, I would love a high concept thriller, something broody and moody but also tightly plotted in the fantasy/horror space (I adore "House of Hollow"!!), and heart-wrenching, emotional sci-fi like "The Ones We're Meant to Find."

5) I am obsessed with adult thrillers and would love to find anything that comps to Lucy Foley, Eliza Jane Brazier, Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, May Cobb, Jeneva Rose. Make me connect with characters that have a surprise dark side, and then twist the knife into me at the end!

Hi Agents: Updating my #MSWL to let you know that I'm no longer able to acquire books that are strictly romance focused, though romantic sub-plots are fine. Still looking forward to seeing your thrillers, mild horror and stories with fantastical elements.

When it comes to near future, I want to see books that remind me of Arrival: first contact through a new lens. I also LOVED Ascension, and anything with that sci-fi thriller feel, with the caveat that if you would comp it to Black Mirror, it’s not for me.

I'm in my dark fiction era! #MSWL

Give me all the horror (!!), mysteries, & thrillers, especially highlighting marginalized POVs (BIPOC, disabled, LGBTQIA+, & all the intersections). I've been so fortunate to read some for fun & for work, but I'm still feeling insatiable!

But I will reopen to select YA genres as well. So it will be Adult SFF, Horror, and Mystery (not true crime). YA horror, thriller, and romance. No YA fantasy or science fiction or contemporary.

Happy to take questions for a little bit about my #MSWL . #askagent

I haven't seen the sun in a month and it's affecting my #MSWL . Please send me more domestic thrillers, YA thrillers, stories about cults, and non-supernatural horror where the monsters are regular people.
