Always a quick way to my heart in any form are dogs, desserts, and true crime. And a few recent favorite “for fun” reads have been Mexican Gothic, Malibu Rising, The Other Black Girl, Luck of the Titanic, Solutions and Other Problems, and Finlay Donovan Is Killing It.
In non-fiction, I’m looking for big ideas, smart thinking, anything which interrogates a particular subject or idea with a fresh perspective. And always on the lookout for gripping and authentic true crime #mswl

#WritingCommunity: When folks wonder what kind of true crime I'm looking for, Killer Inside on Netflix is exactly it. This story weaves together questions about social norms, capitalism, culture, and deviation thoughtfully and with nuance. #MSWL

Irulan, Princess Royal, Bene Gesserit-trained @Nicole_CliffeWhat’s the one unsolved mystery you most want answers to in your lifetime?
I’m cheating bc it’s MY prompt.
1. What happened to Asha Degree?
2. What happened to the Beaumont Children?
3. Who the HELL was the Freeway Phantom?
I'm just saying, but all these unsolved stories are *exactly* the kind of deep-dive queries I want to see in my inbox. True crime, fiction based on these, whatever. It's my catnip. #MSWL
