My Manuscript Wish List®

Currently seeking clean (light romance/no or minimal curing) YA fiction (any genre except heavy fantasy/horror), clean adult romance/romcoms, and compelling book club fiction. I am still seeking Christian YA, Christian fiction, and adult nonfiction as well. I will consider carefully researched historical adult and YA fiction, as well as unique MG fiction of any genre except fantasy. I am also looking for PBs with heart or humor (no Christmas/Halloween projects).

I love unique narrators, multiple POVs, and stories with villains that readers love to hate! I am not a good fit for excessive cursing or open-door romance.

Fun facts about me:

In the seventh grade, I got to walk across the stage at Carnegie Hall in recognition of my poem winning a national youth Scholastic Art & Writing Award.

I spend the summer and fall months crocheting hats and then give them away to people in need during the winter.

I’m always up for a good adventure! I have been parasailing twice, gone zip lining, and have white water rafted.
