I’m always looking for literary fiction, upmarket women’s fiction, historical fiction, suspense, narrative non-fiction, young adult and middle grade.
More specifically, my taste skews more weird, dark, and international in adult and more timeless than trendy in kids. I want books with a heartbeat, and I’m always delighted when an unusual structure or form functions at a higher level.
Queries with the following topics will always get a closer look: abduction, cults, cross-dressing, monsters, the Reformation, the sea, space, twins, witches, and magic in our world or those imagined.
Any submission rules we should know about?: query letter and first chapter (email preferred, no attachments!)
