My Manuscript Wish List®

I am looking for upmarket and literary fiction, psychological thrillers, voicey memoirs and essay collections, and select YA with a focus on underrepresented voices. I am drawn to family sagas, stories with dark themes, and powerful narratives that encourage readers to confront difficult topics and realities.

I am currently looking for… 

  • YA books by underrepresented voices
  • Dark stories, especially family-centered sagas
  • In nonfiction, I am looking for fresh voices in the vein of Cazzie David and Patricia Lockwood

I am not the best fit for…

  • Picture books
  • Middle grade
  • Academic works
  • Business
  • Self-help
