My Manuscript Wish List

I’m on the look out for literary and commercial fiction and YA. I’m drawn to stories that defy genre conventions and play with reader expectations, and I particularly enjoy dystopian fiction, eco-fiction, and apocalyptic narratives, as well as anything with a scientist protagonist. I love books that explore big ideas through compelling narrative.

I love high-concept YA that has me geeking out over the idea and pumping my fist in the air over the action. For contemporary YA I’m interested in online culture and gaming, horror, and psychological suspense.

My jams in regards to non-fiction are tech, futurism, psychology, and environment. Send me your quirkiest science.

Please don’t query me with romance, erotica, ‘new adult’, spirituality, or sports.
