My Manuscript Wish List

This is my 12th year in publishing and I’m actively acquiring! 
The query slush pile is the best way to submit your work  – I’m looking for queries for complete, never previously-published manuscripts in any of these genres: middle grade, young adult, romance and science fiction/fantasy for the adult market. Within these genres, I’m open to absolutely every sub-genre. I love contemporary and paranormal, historical and urban fantasy, stand alone novels and series – anything goes.  Always LGBTQIA+ Friendly!
My motto is “Art. Patience. Discipline.”

Fun facts about me:

I represent New York Times bestselling authors including:

  • Jason M. Hough (THE DARWIN ELEVATOR)
  • Margaret Rogerson (AN ENCHANTMENT OF RAVENS)
  • Roni Loren (THE ONES WHO GOT AWAY)
