My Manuscript Wish List

I represent Adult across multiple genres.

What I’m always looking for:
  • Diverse characters, whether that be BIPOC, religion (specifically Jewish stories), sexual orientation, etc.
  • Lived experiences
What I’m NOT looking for:
  • Picture books
  • Board books
  • Middle grade
  • YA (at this time, although that can possibly change down the line)
  • Manuscripts over 120k. In the genres I represent, there’s no reason for it to be that long.
  • Mobs, spies, mafia, drug mules, military, government conspiracies, or cartel stories
  • War novels
  • Fantasy or sci-fi
  • Novellas
  • Short stories
  • Poetry
  • Lyrical novels
More specifically, I am looking for:
  • LGBTQ romances (Would really really love a Bi or sapphic relationship)
  • Small town romances. Something like Virgin River, Hart of Dixie, or Sweet Home Alabama.
  • Wish fulfillment books.
  • Romantic suspense
  • Domestic suspense
  • Psychological thrillers
  • Child psychopath thriller
  • Serial killers (or children of)
  • Books that feature a Jewish protagonist. I'd love to see how heritage and traditions play into the novel (but do not want the book to be about religion).
  • Munchausen Syndrome (also by proxy)

Fun facts about me:
  • I was an intern on The Young and the Restless the summer before my senior year of college. I spent most of my time hanging out in dressing rooms and taking pictures on set.
  • In my spare time, I am a cat sitter
  • I majored in screenwriting and I spent my childhood wanting to write for soap operas.
  • I wrote fanfiction for Days of our Lives, Law and Order: SVU, Castle, and The Good Wife for many many years (but never all at once).
