LOOKING FOR: All brands of children’s and adult fiction, women’s fiction, all subgenres of romance, fantasy, and crime fiction. On the children’s side, YA and MG. Suzie loves strong characters and voice-driven stories that break out of the typical tropes of their genres, and she’s always looking for unique new voices in stories.
