My Manuscript Wish List

I’m a children’s editor at Albert Whitman & Company looking primarily for picture books and middle grade, and will take on selective YA projects.

Picture Books:

  • Witty and well-crafted stories
  • Subtle books with a layered message

Middle Grade:

  • I am looking for contemporary, fantasy, adventure, magical realism, and historical fiction.
  • I love middle grade that melts my heart while tickling my funny bone and teaching me something new about human nature.
  • And voice-driven literary fiction because don’t we all.


  • I am looking for literary YA contemporary, magical realism, and historical fiction.


  • Lyrical non-fiction picture books on any topic (science, biography, math, etc)
  • Narrative non-fiction for middle grade
  • Feminist non-fiction for all ages
