My Manuscript Wish List®

I love strong characters, unique and diverse voices, and new takes on favorite tropes.

Please know that this list isn’t comprehensive. If you think I would be a great fit for you and your book, send it my way!


Middle Grade

I am currently looking for: Fantasy (all types), Historical Fantasy/Alternate History, Spooky/Paranormal, Mystery, Adventure stories (quests, heists!), Retellings (myth, folklore, legends, fairytales), and Friendship stories (the strength of friendship, friendship break ups!).


Young Adult

I’m currently looking for: Diverse Fantasy (especially drawing on underrepresented voices/myths/worlds/places/etc), Historical Fiction/Fantasy/Alternate History, Paranormal, Spies/Heists (Totally Spies (the cartoon) and Ally Carter!), Gothic/Horror (more suspense, less gore), Retellings (myth, folklore, legends, fairytales), Rom-Coms, and Mystery.


Special Requests:

-High School antics: the romance, the humor, the shenanigans!

-Something that feels like the CW’s Nancy Drew

-Summertime romance!

-Spies! Heists! Secret societies!

-A YA/MG whodunnit!

Fun facts about me:

I have a cat named Fergus who loves to cuddle on his own terms only, and a pup named Chuck who is kind of good at fetch.

I used to live on a farm and grew up taking animals to the county fair.

I met my husband on the first day of college and we’ve been together ever since!
