My Manuscript Wish List

I’m actively building my list and looking for psychological and domestic thrillers with female protagonists and women’s fiction. I love books across genres that explore relationships and family, but I’d love to see a suspense book that explores a romantic relationship. I also enjoy unreliable narrators, quiet tension, and completely ordinary events gone wrong in suspense. Diversity is very important to me, so I’d love to see a POC protagonist in any genre, whether it be women’s fiction, romance, or suspense.

Some guilty pleasures of mine include women’s fiction with suspense elements. I’d love to see the next THE NIGHT THE LIGHTS WENT OUT by Karen White or BIG LITTLE LIES. I also like romantic comedies and would like to see one with a POC main character.

I’m looking for a book with a compulsively readable narrative voice that hooks me from the first few pages.
