Beaming Books

My Manuscript Wish List

I’m currently seeking picture books with a focus on social and emotional learning, themes of nature, STEM/STEAM, multiculturalism, diverse or special needs, folktales, and stories with historically relevant people or events that aren’t overdone. I'm also seeking stories with a light spiritual or religious focus. I'm open to fiction and nonfiction.

In chapter books, I’m looking for authentic stories with an emotional core, memorable characters, and strong voice. I’m always looking for diverse stories and stories with tougher subject matter that’s tackled with heart, hope, and touches of humor.

I'm also open to middle grade nonfiction that centers around environmentalism, activism, body positivity, social emotional learning,  health/mental health, and exploring faith.

Fun facts about me:

When I find time, I research genealogy. And I usually have multiple craft projects in various stages of completion.
