Kaitlyn Leann Sanchez is a mom, wife, literary agent, middle school math teacher, and picture book author. She’s also the proud co-creator and co-host of the Spring Fling Kidlit Contest and Kidlit Zombie Week as well as creator and co-host of the Kidlit Fall Writing Frenzy Contest. In her free time, she loves to play soccer, binge-watch TV shows, and, of course, read, especially when she’s all cozied up with her husband and daughter reading together.
The stories I like to acquire range from emotional to funny. I also look for diversity all in forms, including, but not limited to, BIPOC, neurodiversity, and LGBTQ+.
For picture books, I enjoy all formats from character-driven to concept. I connect with lyrical writing (rhyme and non-rhyme) just as much as funny. I also enjoy nonfiction STEAM books and picture book biographies.
For novels, I lean towards historical fiction, mysteries, magical realism, humorous, and friendships stories.
