My Manuscript Wish List

Having recently transitioned from Marketing Operations to Editorial within SMP, I bring a unique understanding of publishing processes, list management, and sales analysis to the table. Since this transition, I’ve had the pleasure of assisting with a number of best-selling and high profile authors.

I’m primarily seeking voice-driven unforgettable commercial and literary fiction. I’m particularly drawn toward psychological thrillers with elements of suspense, debuts, page-turning beach reads, women’s fiction, and mysteries.

In YA, I particularly love heart-felt contemporary fiction. I look to fall in love with the characters and the voice. I’m also seeking psychological suspense on the YA side.

In nonfiction, strong female voices, narratives, and true crime that reads like a heart-racing thriller especially appeal to me.
