My Manuscript Wish List®

I am currently looking for Young Adult, Middle Grade, Picture books as well as Commercial and Upmarket Fiction. In all genres I am looking for contemporary realism, fantasy, mysteries, historicals and lots of humor. I have a soft spot for heists and sleuths (and would especially love to see a new YA Harriet the Spy or Veronica Mars!) as well as twisty thrillers. On the Adult side, I am looking for anything smart, sharp and witty.  Well-developed characters are a must. I always welcome diverse narratives, including but not limited to LGBTQ or minority voices.
