Hardly any information about what they want or genres they represent. No info on authors they rep or any kind of track record. Just a snarky website.

Thanks for the genre update, Patrick. Looks like they are NOT taking children's or middle grade projects now, so I suppose it's time to "No Response" mine.

Hi randolks,
She doesn't use QueryManager for her queries, so you'll have to visit her website to find her query form.

It says open to query but there is no query now button. Possible technical issue?
