WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR...

I am currently looking to acquire middle grade and young adult novels and am passionate about working with BIPOC and traditionally marginalized creators. Because of my own background and identities, I am especially excited to acquire stories from queer and Latinx/Latine voices! 

Overall I am interested in diverse and inclusive stories across all genres. I love stories with complex characters, immersive worldbuilding, and have a soft spot for anything speculative—especially fantasy and horror. 

RIGHT NOW, PLEASE DON'T SEND ME...

Contemporary tearjerkers; true crime/thrillers starring serial killers

SOME FAVORITE BOOKS I DIDN'T PUBLISH...

Babel by R.F. Kuang; The Spirit Bares Its Teeth by Andrew Joseph White; The Summer Hikaru Died by Mokumokuren; The Cemetery Boys by Aiden Thomas; Raybearer by Jordan Ifueko; Last Night at the Telegraph Club by Malinda Lo; The Firekeeper’s Daughter by Angeline Boulley; Deeplight by Frances Hardinge; Yolk by Mary H. K. Choi; When You Trap a Tiger by Tae Keller; King and the Dragonflies by Kacen Callender; Coraline by Neil Gaiman; Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan; The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty; Witchmark by C. L. Polk; Severance by Ling Ma; Revenge by Yoko Ogawa…to name a few!

ONE OF THE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS AN EDITOR DOES FOR AN AUTHOR IS...

Demystify the (oftentimes) tricky and confusing book making process—which includes everything that comes before, during, and after publication!

I LOVE MY JOB BECAUSE...

I love books! But more than that, I truly believe that stories hold so much power—to connect, to save, and to change us for the better.

WHEN I'M NOT READING, I'LL BE...

Writing, reading tarot cards, binge watching shows, learning a new language (I’m at six!), or searching for the perfect notebook/pen/ink combination.
