My Manuscript Wish List

I represent middle grade, YA, and adult fiction in a variety of genres.

In general, I’m looking to represent high-concept pop fiction, mystery, suspense, thriller, horror, contemporary romance, women’s fiction. I represent science fiction and fantasy for YA and MG only. I want books that Shonda Rhimes would make into a TV show, the next Reese Witherspoon pick, and anything that makes me say OMG. My taste run more commercial and plot driven, but I'm open to looking at just about anything. Sometimes I don't know what I want until I see it.

Anyone who writes in the genres I represent is welcome to query me, but I do have some favorite things I like to read about. Right now, I’d love to see:

  • Books where everything looks normal at first and gets increasingly strange/twisted/violent
  • Edgy, envelope-pushing, potentially controversial, and dark YA
  • YA and MG about body issues
  • Psychological thrillers
  • Domestic thrillers (I describe these as "murder and mayhem in suburbia")
  • Characters who work in law enforcement
  • Anything with a creepy, spooky, bloody, or gothic-style setting
  • Friendship dramas, including friendship breakups
  • Stories about sisters and/or brothers
  • Characters who are ballet dancers, gymnasts, and cheerleaders
  • Medical thrillers

Fun facts about me:

I practice Muay Thai and boxing, and I love to read about fighters. Or even just a great fight scene!
