Keely is looking for well-researched nonfiction books in the areas of health and wellness (physical, mental, and emotional), business, parenting and family life, and the intersection of faith and culture; as well as projects from diverse and under-represented voices. For the Christian market, she is seeking books in the areas of Christian living, spiritual transformation, devotion and worship, and women’s topics including motherhood, relationships and marriage, work-life balance, and calling. She is also seeking narrative nonfiction and memoir. She very occasionally takes on new children’s book projects, including middle grade, picture books, and the occasional YA novel; she loves contemporary stories that feature characters who are quirky and complex, and books that allow children to see themselves in the pages, perhaps for the first time.

She is not looking for thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, or romance.
