CNR: 3/14/17 - This agent's track record of responses is so low that I'm comfortable CNRing this one. One less query I have to withdraw when I'm offered rep.

This agent, in six years of Query Tracker history, has only requested a full once --in 2008, out of 1,027 queries.

There is no Query Tracker record of her ever offering representation to a Query Tracker query.

In six years, she has requested 10 partials--3 YAs, 1 literary, 2 short story collections, the rest not specified.

Other than that, she's a No Responder.

Most agents dont care about name dropping and see it as a ploy. Anyone can take an MFA course with a best seller who was assigned to them in a low residency program. Brett Lott, an Oprah Book Club member, was once my teacher at the Vermont College program. I never ever said he was my mentor. The only way name dropping works is if an author repped by that agent says, go read John Doe's book To Re-Kill a Dead Man. Then it works. Otherwise: "amateur."

Yishai seems to be her assistant, to echo comments below, in addition to representing his own clients. I don't know--sorta confusing. Anyway, he was the one who asked for my MS. Jennifer wrote the rejection.
