Adult: up-market literary and commercial fiction, romance (all subgenres except paranormal), character-driven psychological thrillers, cozy mysteries, and memoir. Young Adult: all subgenres except paranormal, fantasy, and sci-fi. I’m particularly interested in contemporary realistic YA — anything with heart, humor, personality, and depth. But if you’ve got a fast-paced, chilling mystery, I’m all ears. Middle Grade: anything that’s smart, accessible and written with flair. Whether it’s quirky and funny, dark and creepy, or just plain sweet and heartwarming — it’s no big secret that this is my favorite category. Also, I’d love anything Roald Dahl-esque. Non-fiction: Humor
Not looking for: Picture books, cookbooks, self-help books, diet books, military themes or travel writing.
