I'm seeking compelling, character-driven fiction across a range of genres, including literary fiction, upmarket fiction, book club fiction, mystery/crime with a strong hook, gothic and speculative horror, and high-concept suspense and thrillers.
A few things I'm particularly hungry for:
Upmarket and literary fiction geared toward millennials;
Family sagas disguised as horror stories, à la THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE;
Stories about powerful female friendships;
Settings outside the U.S.;
Social commentary with a speculative edge, in the style of Jordan Peele's work or SEVERANCE (TV show);
Dark suspense with sophisticated twists;
Love stories that have something larger to say;
Stories about obsession;
Anything dark and spooky!
Across the board, I'm always eager to represent and champion underrepresented voices and perspectives.
Fun facts about me:
I grew up in Washington State and attended the University of Washington in Seattle. Go Dawgs! (I would also love a project set in the PNW!)
