My Manuscript Wish List®

I joined DKW in Spring 2023, and I am delighted to be building my own list of fantastic writers. I have always loved the ‘science’ of storytelling and am fascinated by the way in which the pieces of a story come together to form something in which readers can lose entire days and feel bereft finishing. As such, I particularly enjoy engaging with narratives on a structural level to draw out their best qualities (I also love interior design and believe my tendency to mentally rearrange the furniture in any room I walk in is not a million miles away).

As I’m in the early stages of building my list and refining my taste, I’m keen to see lots of variety and so I am hoping that my answers to the prompts on the right-hand side are helpful guides to what I am drawn to in terms of storytelling.
