My Manuscript Wish List®

I’m looking for picture book, middle grade and young adult manuscripts across most genres, including contemporary, mysteries, thrillers, magical realism, historical fiction, and non-fiction.

For picture book fiction, I love books that are laugh out loud funny or deliciously dark. For middle grade and young adult, I’m interested in underdogs, strong female characters and/or unreliable narrators. I think it’s important for readers of all backgrounds to see themselves reflected in the media they consume, and I’m looking to bring that diversity to my list.

I’m not a good fit for YA horror, true crime, hard sci-fi or high fantasy. At this time, I’m not looking for board books, early chapter books or non-fiction for the educational market.
