My Manuscript Wish List

Adult and YA fantasy and science fiction except dystopian. In SFF, prefer upmarket writing and settings/characters that think outside SFF tropes with earthy female-based characters. If submitting urban fantasy, please no demons, vampires, angels, or werewolves.

Literary fiction, especially magical realism.

Historical, if the voice is strong. Please no WWII narratives.

Genre romance

Cozy mystery

YA contemporary

Women’s Fiction (especially from marginalized voices)

Fun facts about me:

I used to be a zookeeper and have worked with all types of animals from a feisty snow leopard to a rambunctious cassowary. The exotic cats were my favorite to work with. I LOVE cats.

I am a quiet but hardcore feminist. Like “hairy-legged, down with the patriarchy, screw shrink and pink marketing, free the nipple,” hardcore.

When I was six, I saw a unicorn. To this day not sure what it was, but am unicorn-obsessed.

Doctor Who is my jam. Eleven my favorite. I might have named my daughter Amelia because of Pond.

I have lived in three different countries and traveled in over 20 in five of the seven continents. I’ve seen the poorest and richest sides of humanity of all colors, and I understand ignorance, but I have no tolerance for close-mindedness.
