#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

Query tip: research. You have the best shot of finding the right agent if you check out their #mswl before querying. Here's mine: adult or YA fiction or non, for fiction specifically rom com, hist, mystery, true crime, spec. Love strong female leads, diverse voices.
