The Booker Albert Literary Agency
My Manuscript Wish List
Helen is actively building her list and represents YA, NA, and Adult.
She is seeking Fantasy, Paranormal Romance (in a contemporary setting), Action and Adventure, Thrillers, LGBTQ+ (for this she would consider romance), Horror, and Sci Fi.
She is slightly obsessed with monster stories (especially if they have giant sharks or squids). Bonus points for romance in your books. And stories set in extreme environments such as the arctic, jungle, caves, ocean, and mountains.
She DOES NOT want to read about infidelity or abuse. She is not a good fit for: literary fiction, women’s fiction, psychological drama, crime, mystery, historical, romance, contemporary, graphic novels or non-fiction.
Fun facts about me:
My current MSWL is:
Natural disasters like volcanic eruptions (from an action and adventure POV).
An LGBT story where the MC is both gay and Christian and both parts of their identity are embraced by people around them.
A horror/sci fi about cave diving.
A book set in the Arctic/Antarctic (she would be happy to have this as an Historical novel).
A thriller set in an isolated town (if they are snowed in, or have a storm or flood coming, even better).
A story about mountain climbing.
