EQ via referral: 7/10

She's been a fast responder before (this is the second time I've queried her via referral) so I hope I'll hear back soon.

@keepthefaith (sorry--just saw this) I don't think Jenny was "on the bill" to participate in the conference, but due to a last-minute cancelation she decided to attend (I believe as a favor to the organizer of the event, who is also her client). How's that for an amazing agent? It was definitely a bonus for all of us who were there, but I'm not sure if she is scheduled for any others in the future. Sorry I'm not more help.

KimHarnes, do you know if she has a conference schedule posted somewhere? I know there’s one on her agency’s website, but there was no mention of her attending an SCBWI event. And it appears she won’t be attending ThrillerFest, per the conference’s info. Would love the opportunity to query her!
