I’m looking for ambitious, high-concept YA/MG projects with that irresistible commercial hook, but I will always have a soft spot for a really beautiful literary story. Some projects I’m currently hankering for…
- A YA romance with a “5 minutes in the future” premise a la MORE HAPPY THAN NOT and that terrible/wonderful movie “Timer.”
- High fantasy MG with rich world-building and featuring plenty of unicorns, dragons, all of that classic stuff. Think Patricia Wrede, Bruce Coville, Tamora Pierce.
- Really good YA or even MG horror a la ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD and THE MERCILESS. Keep me up at night, and I’m yours.
- A YA story featuring a strong mother-daughter relationship at its core, like Gilmore Girls.
