My Manuscript Wish List®

I am currently highly interested in developing my adult commercial fiction list, with a particular eye out for vibrant and fun women’s fiction and romance, mysteries and thrillers featuring characters from underrepresented backgrounds, and unusual upmarket book club fiction. I love romantic comedies, but want the comedy to be as prevalent as the romance. I am always looking for series mystery.

I represent some pop culture nonfiction, but on a highly selective basis.

Fun facts about me:

I am a very slow runner, but I listen to audiobooks at 2.3x speed. (Updated from 2x speed. Things are moving fast and furious now.)
