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.

I didn't get one, now that you ask. I queried her back in 2012 and did get one then.

Has anyone submitted to her recently & received a confirmation e-mail? Per company website it says we should get an auto response, but I never saw one come through.

Today I got the same form rejection months after querying. It is one of the most impersonal, and frankly, brazen form rejections ever. LMAO.

8/10 - A form letter in huge point bold print that begins 'Dear Writer' goes a long way in toughening one's skin.

Danielle is a true gem. She is by far one of the sweetest agents I've ever had the pleasure of interacting with, and I cannot recommend her enough. Seriously. Query her.
