#MSWL I'd love a non-Western✨ vampire ✨book.

MG, YA, & Adult all welcome.

For MG: likely adventure/fantasy based w/magic and/or non-Western mythology.

For the rest: fantasy set in a non-Western world w/sharp stakes & a romance.

Could be 1st or 2nd world fantasy.

#MSWL In YA (& MG), more "study/adventures abroad" books featuring teens in non-American locations, especially if the locations are non-Western and the stories star really robust casts of BIPOC characters.

#MSWL Basically any rom-com or romantasy (adult, new adult, or YA) that can give me CRAZY RICH ASIANS vibes.

And I'm also looking for YA in *any* category that can do the same.

#MSWL I'd also love a YA story about high school tennis players. Give me fun, give me rivalry -- bonus points if it can also pull off TWEET CUTE vibes!

#MSWL : sports romances! Especially queer and/or BIPOC.
I was hugely into sports as a kid and am specifically looking for super fun rom-coms in this area that'll give you all the feels! (No preference on which sports are featured!) Adult, New Adult, and YA welcome.

I’d love to work on a Model UN graphic novel! I was a Mary-Kate and Ashley girlie growing up and so I basically just want Winning London but as a YA graphic novel. #MSWL

YA: I love diabolical characters doing diabolical things, for both right and wrong reasons. Villainous found families, tragedies, queer voices, and dark fantasy are top of my list at the moment. If anyone has written a contemporary fantasy marching band book, PLEASE SEND IT TO ME

• YA Contemporary: relatable, everyday situations teens go through. Heartfelt, underlying messages or overall just a fun and feel-good read. Romance plot or self-discovery/coming-of-age. Would love to see a strong theater rom-com!

But I will reopen to select YA genres as well. So it will be Adult SFF, Horror, and Mystery (not true crime). YA horror, thriller, and romance. No YA fantasy or science fiction or contemporary.

Happy to take questions for a little bit about my #MSWL . #askagent

I haven't seen the sun in a month and it's affecting my #MSWL . Please send me more domestic thrillers, YA thrillers, stories about cults, and non-supernatural horror where the monsters are regular people.

📚 OGNs: I'm primarily looking for MG/YA graphic novels (preference for author/illustrator, but open to author-only!) As far as what I'm looking for, everything above applies here!

📚 YA: You'll steal my heart with unique magic systems. Creepy carnivals. Creepy abandoned buildings. New twists on the familiar.

And yes, I'll selectively be looking at queer rom-coms still (because reasons)!
