Profile Update: Open to queries. Genres updated.

She was temporarily removed from their agency website, but that now appears to have been in error and she is now listed again. Thanks to everyone who let me know.

Yes, brianslattery, that's her info page on the site, but there is no longer a link to it from any other page on the site and she isn't listed on agent list. What sometimes happens, they remove an agent but forget to remove the info page.

Actually she is still listed on the agency website, under the first name Steph. Here it is:

Current wishlist on her Curtis Brown page:

Fiction: Contemporary thriller; books that explore friendship and group dynamics; books with a small-town weird feel; stories about hidden secrets from the past that suddenly erupt into the present; espionage; stories with a kick-ass heroine with a dark streak; gothic fiction (dark, sinister, and deathly)

Non-fiction: memoir, entertainment, lifestyle, parenting and humour.

Children, MG, YA: 'real-world' books with a streak of mythic; humor sprinkled in

I'm confused, are submissions closed for this agency? The website says they are open to submisions, but the submission portal says they are closed...

"Thank you for sending us [MS] and for giving us the opportunity to consider your work. While we enjoyed reading your submission, which stood out from the many we receive, we couldn't find an agent here who felt strongly enough to take it further and therefore we are afraid we are not able to offer you representation for this project. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your material and we wish you every success with your writing. Best wishes, New Writing Team Curtis Brown Group Ltd. "
