***IF YOU ARE SUBMITTING A PB OR CB, PLEASE NOTE THAT I AM NOT OPEN WIDELY. PLEASE INCLUDE WHO REFERRED YOU OR WHICH CONFERENCE I ATTENDED, WHERE I HAVE MEANT YOU AND/OR REQUESTED YOUR WORK.***

Fields marked (required) are required, and the other fields are encouraged.

I am currently building a diverse list of illustrators and authors. I represent picture books (by referral only), MG, YA, and Adult genre fiction. Across the board, and regardless of age group or genre, I am interested in writing that contains authentic emotional resonance--whether it brings on the giggles or tears or both.

Illustrators:

·  Creators that illustrate any age group from picture books, chapter books, middle grade, and YA

* If you are an illustrator submitting art samples only (not a dummy), please put "SEEKING ART REPRESENTATION" in lieu of a title. And "0" or "1" for Word Count. In the sample section, simply write "n/a."
* Please only upload art samples in the upload section. DO NOT upload FULL manuscripts. If interested, we will request to read the full manuscript.


Middle Grade:

·  Contemporary

·  Fantasy: urban fantasy, paranormal – GHOSTS! And WITCHES!

·  Horror - would love any kind

·  Graphic Novels

·  Novel in Verse


Young Adult:

·  Romance - RomCom, paranormal, or contemporary

·  Contemporary

·  Fantasy

·  Mystery/Suspense


Adult:

·  Romance/Women’s Fiction – RomCom, Paranormal, and Contemporary

·  Upmarket

·  Suspense/Thriller, and a cozy Murder Mystery (think Golden Girls with a dead body)


THINGS I LOVE AND WOULD LOVE TO SEE IN MY QUERY BOX:
Black joy!
Romance! Even 1st crushes, hand-holding, and 1st kisses in MG! Give me all the love stories!
Generational family dynamics
Fantasy steeped in folklore, mythology, or culture
Fresh takes on the supernatural and paranormal - wait, did I tell you how much I LOVE witches and ghosts!?! Oooo, and the afterlife, underworld, Gods, and anything similar.
Humor, whimsy, adventure, wonder
Sibling stories
Single parent or single grandparent stories
Interracial friendships/relationships
Narratives with cultures outside of my own
Cats and tarsiers!


***I will respond to EVERY submission that I receive. During the pandemic, wait times are slightly longer. Please expect submission-response to be anywhere from a day to 3 months. I do apologize for that. Feel free to nudge should I take longer than this.***
