My Manuscript Wish List

My list is diverse and I love it that way. I represent almost all types of fiction and nonfiction, as well as young adult and middle grade. For nonfiction I am searching for books that look at the world in a new, unusual way, or that give me insight into a topic that I may not be familiar with. For fiction, regardless of whether it’s literary, upmarket book club fiction, romance, epic fantasy, science fiction, cozy mysteries, thrillers, ya or middle grade, I am looking for a narrative voice that resonates with me. Books that particularly make me sit up and take notice these days are:

Upmarket fiction (i.e., bookclub fiction) that have a twist or shed light on an intriguing issue, or that feature quirky, dysfunctional families.

Novels that explore cultural heritage

Epic fantasy, especially one set in a non-Western culture, military sf or space opera

Psychological thrillers with female protagonists

Magical realism for the adult, YA or MG market.

Young adult and middle grade novels that feature diverse protagonists

Nonfiction for middle grade or young adult audiences

Any novel with great characters and a compelling storyline

Unique nonfiction

All that being said, I’m really just looking for projects that I fall in love with and since I can’t always predict what that is going to be, definitely feel free to reach out to me regardless!
