As always, I am actively trying to make sure my list is representative of kids in the UK today, and am actively looking for and prioritising work by creators from backgrounds underrepresented in publishing, whether that's ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, class, or otherwise

My bookshelf is 50% character-driven sff/speculative/spooky, 50% realistic contemporary/historical (coming-of-age romance, mystery/thriller, action-adventure, and verse novels), mostly by BIPOC, queer, or traditionally underrepresented folks, & my taste very much reflects that.

We updated our romantic suspense guidelines last year and are actively doing outreach to find authors who are writing LGBTQ+ stories. I know that category romance in general and Harlequin in particular have not always been quick to embrace stories from underrepresented voices.
