Currently seeking:

  • Fresh, unique romantic comedies 
  • Fun, quirky commercial women’s fiction that also packs an emotional punch
  • #Ownvoices in women’s fiction and romance, and as an autism mom, I’m especially interested in finding more stories featuring neurodiverse characters, as well as those with disabilities
  • Gothic suspense/women’s fiction that is steeped in atmosphere and creepiness, but doesn’t quite cross the line into horror
  • Diverse contemporary or historical romance/women’s fiction — would love something in the vein of “Sylvie’s Love”
