My Manuscript Wish List®

I am primarily interested in middle grade, young adult, and new adult fiction. I enjoy contemporary literature, RomComs, literary fiction and novels in verse. I look for writing that explores diverse experiences with elements of intersectionality. I’m drawn to stories that take you on a journey through growth and I love a good friendship story! I’d currently like to see:

  • Stories featuring BIPOC leads
  • Ace-spec stories
  • Stories featuring Muslim characters
  • Black Women’s Fiction
  • Latinx Middle Grade
  • Stories featuring diverse LGBTQ+ leads (no heavy trauma please)

For non-fiction, I’m interested in writing derived from performing arts or passion projects, pop culture social comentary, minority entrepreneurs, LGBTQ+ experiences and discussions of mental health in minority communities.

Fun facts about me:

I am based in San Diego, California and have attended Comic-Con every year since 2012 (I even cosplay)! I also write poetry occasionally (I prefer the term poetess to poet) and I am dancer with formal training in ballet, tap, jazz, and hip-hop.
