    SPECIAL INTERESTS
    • Fiction tends to be more commercial than literary
    • More interested in women's fiction than romance
    • In the adult world, I’m looking for: commercial women’s fiction, historical fiction, mystery, biography, history, health, and lifestyle – and, especially, thoughtfully written commercial novels, thrillers with international settings, and narrative non-fiction.
    • In the children’s world, I’m looking for: Smart, contemporary YA and middle-grade novels. A great new mystery series for boys would be fun. I will look at historical fiction and fantasy but am not taking on much in those areas.
