My Manuscript Wish List

I represent middle grade, YA, and adult fiction in a variety of genres.

In general, I’m looking to represent mystery, suspense, thriller, horror, contemporary romance and family stories, women’s fiction. I represent science fiction and fantasy for YA and MG only, and Although anyone who writes in these genres is welcome to query me, I do have some favorite things I like to read about. Right now, I’d love to see:

– Books set in prisons, hospitals, and shopping malls, or any other closed environment with rules different from those of everyday society
– Workplace dramas, especially if they’re YA
– Edgy, envelope-pushing, potentially controversial, and dark YA
– YA and MG about body issues
– Psychological thrillers
– Domestic thrillers (I describe these as “murder and mayhem in suburbia”)
– Characters who work in law enforcement
– Anything with a creepy, spooky, bloody, or gothic-style setting
– Friendship dramas, including friendship breakups
– Stories about sisters
– Characters who are ballet dancers, gymnasts, and cheerleaders
– LGBTQ stories for any audience
– Magical realism for any audience
– Medical thrillers
