Hi kitbuddy, She lists Fantasy: Magical Realism on her QueryManager form.

The genres for this agent shows fantasy as one. She clearly states in an interview on MSWL that she doesn't rep it as well as almost everyone at their boutique agency only rep non-fiction. Sell only non-fiction. It's sad because most people don't have Publishers Marketplace to see these things and are deceived. Either QT needs to update or the agent does but someone needs to get on it before wasting some hopeful's time.

Sent me a respectful rejection, and said my short story collection wasn’t a good fit for her at this time. I am very pleased with the prompt response. I appreciate her consideration.

Just got a prompt, friendly, respectful rejection for my psychological thriller. Evidently a nice person and a diligent one.

Thoughtful rejection of Proposal after a couple of days. Definitely worth the try.

Ismita did ask for a max 2MB upload of the Proposal for the nonfiction title--much revised since she saw it last. There have been several versions of this book, but the one or two percent of agents who gave me thoughtful rejections have helped to make this version the best.

Immediate but thoughtful rejection of short story collection. A second nonfiction query is still pending.

Form rejection after full request- always a bummer!
