Action, Adventure, Chills, Romance – I am your mentor for all YA genre fiction. Send me your tropey goodness and I will help you shine your MS brighter than a freshly washed and waxed U.S.S. Enterprise. Can genres cross over and mix? You bet. Who doesn’t like a little kissing in their science fiction or some laughs in their horror?
I love all things science – one of my hobbies continues to be collecting science news articles for story ideas. But I also love gritty urban fantasy and magickal creatures. Adventure horror is also a favorite. Send me your monsters. Bring on the mayhem.
By day, I work in schools, so I have a strong interest in seeing all the students I teach represented in YA fiction. The cast of SpiderMan Homecoming is a good example of what I mean, although, I also want to see characters specifically representing the LGBTQ+ community.
This is my second year as a Pitch Wars mentor but it comes after many years mentoring both teachers and developing writers. My focus will always be both on you, the writer, and your book.
