Interested in
Joe will be focusing on Children and Young Adult Literature; he has a particular regard for the "smart" middle-grade novel.  Another interest is adult genre fiction, especially fantasy and Science Fiction.  He is very interested in working with writer-artists on graphic novels or picture books, and is also interested in work which portray cultural diversity.  He loves work that breaks new ground, has a fresh perspective or subverts the accepted paradigm by looking at in in a new or unexpected way.
