Alexis is looking for literary fiction, contemporary family sagas, science fiction, fantasy, modern retellings of folk tales/historical events, and idea-driven nonfiction. She is particularly interested in narratives that explore unique clashes of culture and offer strong world-building. Whether a story is set on another planet, in another time, or at the local convenience store, she likes to know the rules the characters live by. She appreciates big ideas grounded in relatable details and opportunities to dive right into the hearts and minds of characters. Multi-generational narratives and unlikely friendships are particularly appreciated.
