My Manuscript Wish List Favorite 

Working with authors as a collaborative partner is a dream come true.

I’m currently seeking submissions for middle grade and young adult. I love stories that encourage children—and all of us—to be the heroes and heroines of our own lives.

For fiction, I’ll consider all genres and love a good genre splice. For non-fiction, anything that teaches me about someone, something, and somewhere new in a creative and fun way.

For all writing, I enjoy unique characters formed from their own experiences in a unique world. The characters need to feel real with a distinct voice from the first line. Thematic elements and strong character arcs are a must. My favorite books are commercial fiction with a literary flair and inclusive books that bring us together as citizens of the world.
