Little Brown, JIMMY Books
My Manuscript Wish List
Former editor at JIMMY Patterson Books, an imprint of Hachette Book Group, and Sourcebooks acquiring MG and YA. California native, NYC transplant. I love to travel, relax in the sun, cheat at Uno, play Kubb in the park, and list to Hamilton non-stop. Ambivalent about Oxford commas.
Fun facts about me:
I used to crochet, but now I'm lucky if I can make a scarf. I like tea and coffee equally. My favorite recent vacation destination was Morocco - it's gorgeous and amazing, and you should go. I'm a Tumblr lurker. I was a movie theater usher, a nanny, construction worker, notary public, dish washer (for one night), office temp., executive assistant, IT liaison, de facto HR manager, fundraiser cold caller (the worst job), newspaper editorial assistant, marketing intern, and now book editor.

Guidelines & Details
I'd like the next...
Pride by Ibi Zoboi; I love fresh take retellings. Pushing Daisies; cancelled before its prime - I don't know how a show about death could be so darned cute. Stranger Things in Graphic Novel format; weird, spooky, visual mysteries. Hunger Games; NOT dystopia, but flipped gender roles, high stakes, tight pacing, smart, and emotional action adventure. Eleanor and Park - but platonic; where my boy-girl epic friendships at?
My favorites include...
Brooklyn 99, Please Like Me, Community, The 100, Game of Thrones, Merlin, The White Queen, Firefly, Farscape, Black Panther, Wonder Woman, Call Me By Your Name, Grosse Point Blank, Lord of the Rings, The Baroque Cycle or literally anything by Neal Stephenson, Jurassic Park (first movie, both books), Throne of Glass, The Hate You Give, The Book Thief, Graceling.
