RN, I'm craving a YA/Adult romance with a male love interest who OOZES charm and charisma. Nothing else, just those vibes of being irresistible af and leaning into it. Please give me your Henry Montagues, Ian Flannerys, Jesper Faheys, and yes, even Jace Waylands. #MSWL

Finally, the thing I didn't know I wanted. I have found that several times in this past year and it has been absolute delight. My clients' creativity always outpaces my own imagination, and I love to be surprised by a book. If it's middle grade of YA, try me! #MSWL

Of course I rep a lot of amazing YA fantasy authors and always love YA fantasy, and am especially excited to find fantasy that totally upends my expectations, contemporary fantasy, and contained fantasy (a la a fantasy set on a cruise kind of thing). #MSWL

The Olympics have reminded me. I always want GIRLS in sports. Especially in #MG. #YA okay too. Wacky teams are even better, like "the Breakaways". Maybe the kid isn't "good" but really likes it anyway? Just spitballin'. #mswl

The Fear Street movies are everything I love about horror and more. #MSWL I’d love to see anything along these lines in YA horror. Make it contemporary, sassy, full of friendship, enemies that band together, and don’t forget the jump scares. #FearStreetNetflix

The next HELLO GIRLS remains on the top of my #MSWL, but as I consider endless, emotional, meaningful platonic love and the types of female friendships that are ride or die in the way my own have been—especially as teens, in high school, in YA—let's add BOOKSMART as an example.

I love the quirkiness and humor and vibes of TAZ (The Adventure Zone) so much. So if someone wants to send me a YA about a bunch of friends doing their actual play/gaming podcast and just living their best lives I would be forever in your debt. #mswl
