My Manuscript Wish List®

Currently Seeking:

Middle Grade

  • Stories that center around themes of friendship and exciting adventures / journeys
  • “Found family” trope for a middle grade audience with an ensemble cast of characters
  • Voicey narratives that really get down on a young reader’s level
  • Characters learning their own agency in settings outside of their home like boarding school / camp or in a group activity (sports, theater, clubs, etc).
  • For MG graphic novels, I’d love to see a mystery or heist!

Young Adult

  • Sweet and funny romances that have readers kicking their feet, but each character is also overcoming something outside of their budding romantic relationship
  • Thriller / mysteries
  • Contemporary or fantasy that explore the growing-pangs of young adulthood (clashing with parents, making/losing friends, grief as a young adult)
  • For YA graphic novels, a fantasy / dark academia story would be intriguing!

New Adult

  •  #RushTok / Scream Queens but make it fantasy or dark academia
  • Magical colleges / universities


  • Fantasy with heavy romance aspect
  • Light-hearted Rom-coms
  • Romances with small town vibes, sports settings
  • Fresh conflicts
  • Stories of women finding their happy ending without romance (think the Barbie movie)
  • Travel / wanderlust

In general, for Fantasy, I enjoy intricate world-building and a unique political system / conflict.

I am not a good fit for:

  • Historical Romance
  • Science Fiction
  • Thrillers
  • Picture Books
  • Non-Fiction
