Fantasy / Historical Fiction / Literary Fiction / MSWL Paragraphs / Science Fiction / Young Adult

Kirsten Carleton, The Prospect Agency

I’m interested in YA, speculative, and literary fiction in which I connect with the characters and can’t wait to read what they will do next. Great writing is a must, but not enough to stand alone: I want plot, action, movement.

I’m particularly interested in stories that bend and blur genres; literary takes on high concept worldbuilding; diverse characters in stories that are not just about diversity; antiheroes I find myself rooting for; characters with drive and passion; girls and women in STEM fields; settings outside the US/Europe; characters coping with mental illness; well-researched historical settings; YA noir/thriller/mystery; believable romance that doesn’t develop out of nowhere; a story that introduces me to a new subculture and makes me feel like a native.
