I thought I was skipped for good, because she hardly ever goes back, but she finally responded. I'm telling myself it was because my sub was sitting in a maybe pile and she couldn't make up her mind. Yep. That's what I'm telling myself

Thank you for thinking to query me with your project. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like a good fit for my list at this time. Again, thank you, and best of luck finding an agent.

I submitted a full to her about three months ago. I got confirmation she received it right away. If she has requested a full from you, did she eventually get back to you? How long was the wait for a response to a full request? Thanks in advance for any help.

@jjadamson, this is what I found on her Publishers Marketplace page:
I am avidly looking for new talent, particularly in the areas of commercial women's fiction, suspense, high-concept young adult fiction, and anything and everything that keeps me up all night reading.
*I accept queries by email only.
*When you send your query letter please also send the first ten pages of your manuscript in the body of the email.
