My latest #MSWL is for imaginative and innovative MG and YA Non-Fiction. Take me beyond straight biographies time period overviews. I want to see people playing with form, topic and language

Updated my agenting wishlist. Two specific highlights:

* Novels (includes kid-lit!) and memoirs about the adoptee experience, by adoptees.

* Adult and kid-lit books that celebrate neurodiversity, from authors who are neurodivergent.

An epic MG or YA fantasy with lush world building and high stakes. Think WE HUNT THE FLAME. #mswl

I'd also love more spooky/horror MG. Give me fantastic monsters, nature-based villains (like a forest or swamp), and something weird and twisty. I'll take it in YA too. #mswl

I just finished Rick Riordan's recent Apollo book, and I would love an upper MG or YA or Adult book about Artemis/Diana. If YA or A, I would love this in the vein of Madeline Miller's Circe. MG would be in the vein of a RR Presents novel! #mswl

The last five days of my life were mostly drama and fear, but things are looking up. I still need cheering up, nonetheless, so my #MSWL for now is: YA friendship stories, YA romance, YA rom coms, YA boarding school books, YA hijinks, YA "All American" show TV like soap opera.

Real talk - I would be into something in my inbox for kids or teens that, if not actively advocating for prison abolition, seriously treats it as an option and a pathway. Fiction or nonfiction. MG or YA. #mswl
