I acquire for both Tor Teen and Forge Books. In YA, I’m seeking fresh, mature voices in mystery, history, and romance. I love everything from a sophisticated, psychological suspense with complex characters I can never quite trust, to a twisted, Gothic historical thriller, to 2017’s Love Songs & Other Lies, a remarkable debut romance about first loves and second chances. I’m always partial to books with an international flair, or stories that show a hidden culture. If you have any combination of a feminist flapper, 1940s-era Paris, a creepy, small-town mystery, a fast-paced, Indiana Jones adventure, or a snappy, bad-boy romance, I’m hooked!
