I have an intimate list of clients and am actively seeking to sign more quality writers and illustrators. I am interested in all genres of YA but am especially interested in a story set within another culture (think YA version of MEMOIR OF A GEISHA or BLOOD DIAMOND). A beautiful historical with a strong, commercial twist would also be amazing.
I'm looking to grow my non-fiction list and am interested in anything with a technology, pop-culture, entertainment or women's issues angle. Something different from what's already out there -- topics better suited for magazine articles (i.e. "how to find the perfect guy" or "100 ways to be an awesome teen") aren't for me. You must have a strong platform or be considered an expert in your field.
On the adult side, I'm seeking only romance titles with protagonists who appeal to younger women.
I am not interested in picture books, chapter books, younger middle grade stories or adult titles (other than romance, as indicated above).
*Note that these are just items I'm really hoping cross my desk. I have a variety of tastes, so if you're unsure if it's something for me, feel free to query me anyway once I open back up to submissions.
