I specialize in all Children’s, Middle Grade, and Young Adult books, but especially the following:
fantasy and fairytale retellings
character-driven sci-fi and dystopian
Entertaining and educational books for young readers
rhyming picture books
Books should be fairly clean and appropriate for the age of the audience (no sex, or cussing in MG, minimal in YA). I’m a sucker for the timeless “feel good” book, but I also love stories that aren’t afraid to tackle uncomfortable, honest, or real life issues. Don’t sugar-coat. Please make me cry. Send diverse characters and cultures. I like books that teach, nurture, and educate while entertaining with a great story.
I’m currently seeking YA/MG titles that deal with underrepresented chronic illnesses. All sub-genres welcome, but particularly interested in a fantasy/historical twist.
All Christian genres and devotionals
books that inspire dreaming, goal-setting, and productivity
Memoirs only about relavent topics and from high platform authors
Please do not send:
