"Dark, twisted, borderline disturbing… words I’d use to describe my interest in thrillers. Not looking for gore at the moment, but definitely into psychological elements. Especially fictionalized accounts of actual crimes." @claire_m_harris #MSWL psliterary.com/submissions/
Last night I procrastinated so much on Actual Things (cleaning? life? etc) that I made myself a website 👀 taragonzalez.com

#MSWL BIPOC-led #MH #DIS and #ND rep and particularly writing that isn't *about* these things but embraces how they affect the way we live our lives. E.g. a romcom lead who also happens to be dealing with PTSD, a thriller lead whose ADHD might inform the way they work...
#MSWL Clever social satire that takes us behind the curtain of worlds of privilege and skewers them with a sharp wit and kickass protagonist. Would love to see more social horror that applies thriller/horror tropes. See: NOTHING TO SEE HERE, SUCH A FUN AGE, OTHER BLACK GIRL
I’d love to find thoughtful and fresh YA thrillers, books that go beyond the mystery to question the character’s views or the status quo. Think Tiffany Jackson, Kara Thomas, Courtney Summers, or the show Cruel Summer.
I’m looking for pageturning thrillers, book club fiction that is engaging and accessible, but still layered and thought-provoking. (You *might* call that “the intersection of commercial and literary.”) Think Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’d also LOVE hooky rom coms. #MSWL
I would love to find a suspenseful YA mystery/thriller that plays with form, chronology, or narration. It’s is a great genre to play around with social constructs, too, and I love subversion. (Think: Gillian Flynn) #MSWL

I’m fascinated with folklore, fables, fairy-tales, mythology – anything which works these elements into its narrative will definitely grab my attention, whether that’s in the crime/thriller, historical or literary space #mswl
