What She's Seeking
A lifelong fan of children’s books, she’s looking for middle grade and young adult novels in a range of genres, including fantasy and science fiction, historical fiction, romance, and contemporary, plus anything that bends the rules of genre. She is actively seeking books by underrepresented voices.
She is also seeking fiction for adults, especially fantasy and science fiction, historical fiction, and literary/upmarket women’s fiction.
Her tastes run to character-driven, voicey novels with heart, humor, and a hook.
