Lori is looking for smart thrillers; domestic suspense; Hitchcockian-style mysteries/thrillers; contemporary women's/book club fiction; historical fictionthat is relative to contemporary times; love stories of all kinds.
I tend to be attracted to two kinds of memoir
• Literary memoir that gives the reader fresh and unique insight into a world, culture, or movement.
• Personal development memoirs written by experts in their field (or an expert with a platform). These memoirs not only include story, but contain some actionable advice, strategies, or philosophies that readers can apply to their own life.
