My Manuscript Wish List

Actively acquiring for two imprints: Cleis Press and Viva Editions. For Cleis Press, a premier publisher of sexuality books and LGBTQ+ stories, I'm seeking nonfiction books about sexuality, contemporary and historical erotica, and LGBTQ+ nonfiction. For Viva Editions, a publisher of mind, body, and spirit nonfiction, I'm seeking books that enlighten and inspire, particularly those that highlight marginalized voices and women's empowerment.


Fun facts about me:

I am also the President of the Women's National Book Association NYC, a nonprofit volunteer organization and NGO that supports women in the book community.
