My Manuscript Wish List
While my wishlist includes picture book up to teen, I'm searching primarily for middle grade and teen. I'm looking for diverse voices as I build my list, and aim to center authors and stories that have too often been marginalized.
I love books that draw me in with engaging and cinematic voices, compelling characters, relationships that propel the narrative, and engaging hooks. I'm also a big fan of "feel-good" reads or adventure-style stories that introduce young readers to important themes such as self-confidence, acceptance, and love.
For teen, this means I'm searching for rom-coms and sibling or friendship stories. In middle grade, I'm looking for something that really captures the ridiculousness of being a tween. A light-hearted mystery, adventure that gets out of hand, or middle school friendship/crush story would probably be a good fit for me! In all age levels and genres, I especially love stories that have underlying themes that validate, encourage, and inform readers on issues of identity, responsibility, and choice.
