Looks like she's only looking for combo author/illustrators for PB currently.

Submitted YA via Query Manager at start of May 2021 - no space for actual sample, only a query letter, which really threw me. Got rejection two days later saying it wasn't the right fit for her list.

Kristin sent me an incredibly lovely personalized rejection letting me know that the project I queried wasn't the one for her, but asked for more info about my publishing history.

YA LGBTQ+ Contemporary, 82k

Also @deatheatercedricdiggory - I'd queried Chelsea a few months ago without a response, and went ahead and queried Kristin since there wasn't a "no from one = no from all" on the agency website.

Does anyone know if you can query more than one agent here if one rejects you?

3 day rejection. At least her form letter was only two sentences long.
