My Manuscript Wish List®

I’m an Editor acquiring for St. Martin’s Press and Minotaur Books. Within the mystery genre, much of my list consists of contemporary cozies with smart, curious protagonists, clever conceits, and a good dash of humor. I’m also eager for darker or more traditional mysteries, especially those that challenge ideas around criminal justice, and feature characters and authors from communities and backgrounds that are underrepresented in the genre. Please send me your queer mysteries!

On the St. Martin’s side, I am primarily interested in adult narrative nonfiction, especially untold stories from history, environmental science, racial justice, LGBTQ+ authors, and investigative journalism. Nonfiction that reads like fiction is absolutely a plus. I also edit select, plot-driven literary and upmarket fiction. Across all genres, socially-conscious writing and work that highlights marginalized voices is of particular interest.
