My Manuscript Wish List

My areas of interest include both Y/A and Adult’s fiction, with a special affinity for literary fiction, crime, dark thrillers, high-concept women’s fiction and contemporary Y/A (including thrillers).
I am looking for well-crafted and compelling stories that features a strong narrative voice. Beautifully written and so very suspenseful works that captivates the reader with its prose and its plot.
I am also looking to acquire science-fiction that explore what it means to be human in the age of technology. I’m very interested in everything about A.I. in general and I love reading and seeing things about it.
When it comes to nonfiction, I’m open to fresh and smart narrative nonfiction in the areas of journalism, politics, true crime, TV/Movie and sport.
