My Manuscript Wish List

The moment when I pick up a book and delve so deep into that world that I am compelled to finish it in one sitting and have coffee with at least one of the main characters is when I know I have an ideal project in my hands.

I have a wide variety of tastes, but I am always on the lookout for psychological/legal thrillers, action and adventure, science fiction and fantasy with strong world-building and action to drive the story, magical realism and paranormal (because who doesn’t want a little magic in their lives?).

I also enjoy fiction that tackles tough topics.  I like stories that make me think and deal with the joys and sorrows of love and friendship.  With that being said, I also enjoy humorous books dealing with love and friendship.  Basically, I want to have an emotional connection to the story and the characters in it and this holds true for any genre.  I am open to any story as long as it is well-written with a strong voice so I can make that emotional connection.
