BUT, I’d especially love to find contemporary commercial YA (horror, thriller, romance etc.) that is really nailing whatever genre it is - in a fun and interesting way.

Hey writers! I won’t be able to participate in #SFFpit for long today, but I’m always on the lookout for engaging SFF in the YA and MG spheres.

Here are some specific wish list items and how to reach me: 1/4

-character-driven YA sci-fi, especially if it explores a theme such as our relationship to technology or what it means to be human
-YA sci-fi blended with any other genre—sci-fi horror, sci-fi fantasy (I’d die for a YA Gideon the Ninth!), sci-fi mystery/thriller, etc.

Or a dash of speculative in contemporary is great too! For YA fantasy, I love swoony, action-packed stories with fresh magic systems and diverse worldbuilding #MSWL.

I'm usually specific with my wish list and comps, but I'm going to try something more general here, because I love seeing the unexpected in my inbox. For YA contemporary, send me the feels! Love stories! Coming of age stories focused on identity! Quirkiness OR grittiness! #MSWL

3/ 2019 #MSWL Agents: 1st and always, I want to curate a list of authors (and books) that accurately reflects the world around me--one that is filled with diverse creators and content--and support them in our shared goal of creating more mirrors (and portals) for kids and teens.

Agent friends! Since I was closed to submissions for a while, I want to declare that I am/have been BACK OPEN FOR BUSINESS! Please send your clients' amazing projects my way. I'm particularly eager to find more YA contemporary and fantasy, plus MG contemporary. #MSWL

Happy Friday!

Want to let #amquerying folks know that my current #mswl is exclusively (hyperbole!) sapphic, dark, comedic horror feat. BIPOC casts!

I’m a fan of Scream, Fear Street 1994, Urban Legend (2001), The Descent

I’m that goofy bitch from the block w/as big mouth!!!

Needed more words 😅:

Looking for this in YA and Adult!

If you don’t have horror, my next wish is contemporary women’s fiction featuring a main character or ensemble cast in the mid-20 - mid-30s. I’m not married and don’t want kids; I have hangovers and lesbian drama 🥳 #mswl
