My Manuscript Wish List

I represent YA and adult fiction across genres. I'm looking for literary, commercial and high-concept stories, multi-layered romance, and page-turning suspense. If you can make me laugh or make me cry, it's a plus. For both the adult and young adult market, I'm especially interested in:

  • contemporary and speculative fiction that explore social issues
  • YA fantasy based in mythology across cultures
  • historical novels that spark my need to know more
  • characters with disability, chronic illness or mental illness - that doesn't necessarily drive the plot
  • #ownvoices
  • women and girls in STEM
  • romantic plots and subplots that surprise me
  • LGBTQIA+ characters
  • the intersection of science and religion, or magic and convention, where what is real is not clear
  • animal and ecological themes

I'm not looking for hard scifi, high fantasy, erotica or picture books. I will consider MG if it fits into my interests and is geared toward the older end of that audience.
