Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

queried 01/22/15. Single in the CIA, memoir. received almost immediate response back asking for more information (how I had heard about her, any other agents, etc.) This was a first for me.

She requested a full a bit later on 01/22/15. Hopeful on this one, she seems great.

update - nudged on 02/20 and received rejection.

I did read it. I like the concept but on reflection, I'm not confident I could find a publisher for it. Reluctantly, I think I must step aside. Thanks so much for letting me see it!

Claire responded within two hours of my website query. We spoke on the phone the next morning, and she requested an exclusive. She sold our book within two weeks to Lyon's Press/Rowman & Littlefield for good terms.

I submitted a query to Claire and she emailed asking to speak over the phone. She told me that my book didn't fall in women's fiction or YA and she didn't seem to know about the New Adult genre (or at least wasn't interested in repp'ing it). She offered some great advice and said she would take another look if I decided to revise.
