YA

I am REALLY hungry and I mean bottomless appetite for some great fantasy inspired by underrepresented cultural lore (YA and MG). Look over your manuscripts. Tell your friends. Tell your family. Because I’m pulling a Kirby for these manuscripts.

Query me!

I rewatched Pose and baby Blanca sneaking out of her house in her shake-n-go wig to discover The Balls is a YA #mswl for sure!

Hello, who wants to discuss #DarkNetflix ? And who wants to write its spiritual YA component? #mswl

Inconveniently Specific Wish List #mswl

− Intergenerational found family like Howl’s Moving Castle; This is England

− YA horror like Beetlejuice, WWDITS, Paprika

− NYC stories; no Gossip Girl energy (unless satire or horror)

− Strong ensemble like E4’s Misfits; The Wire

Where are all the YA stories about this? Operation Peter Pan. The clandestine mass exodus of over 14,000 unaccompanied Cuban minors ages 6 to 18 to the United States in the 60s. I would love to see some. #mswl

#MSWL I’m DESPERATELY NEEDING a YA or adult romance where a sweet couple falls in love—no insta love. I want to see their journey, whether it’s f/f, m/m, f/m...love is love. I just want ❤️ and laughter and kindness with lots of friends and family and community.

Between my new found love for Oumi Janta and binge-watching Betty, I am so ready for some rollerblading/skateboarding YA magic to happen #mswl

I'd also love to see more upmarket fiction, women's fiction, & YA horror. I'm surprised how little of the query pie these genres take up. Please send me more of them. #MSWL

SOME NEWS! After an S&S restructure, I'm now at McElderry, where I'll still be acquiring YA but will *also* be actively looking to build my MG list!

So agents, please keep me in mind for all your upcoming SFF middle grade! I'm definitely prioritizing that at the moment. #MSWL

So. Stunning. Please send all the PB, MG, and YA books about the art of hair, makeup, and fashion created by Black folks my way. #MSWL

So jealous the girl with the green ribbon could take her brain off. pic.twitter.com/aVUkI3krKr

This post reminds me that I need one of you YA authors to write a creepy gothic retelling of the story of green ribbon girl. Maybe a graphic novel?!? #mswl
