My Manuscript Wish List

I’m actively building a list of speculative and reality-based fiction for teens and middle-grade readers as well as works of humor for all ages.

I’m eager to acquire submissions featuring underrepresented and marginalized voices. I’m an armchair adrenaline junkie, so I love thrillers and horror of all types. I’m interested in character-driven science fiction as well as contemporary fiction featuring geek culture, alternative culture, and feminism. I’m particularly fond of speculative and secondary-world stories that reflect and extrapolate out from our current political climate and encourage activism, involvement, and resistance.

I’m looking for provocative, atmospheric, and emotionally-authentic stories and I’m a fan of whatever makes me laugh—crow’s feet for days over here—so I’d love to see anything told in a smart, funny voice. I’m a sucker for stories about journalism, surveillance, conspiracies, the occult, and best friendships. Bonus points if they’re set in the Pacific Northwest.


Fun facts about me:

I have a “cat” named Jackson.
