Hi daizylublue, She indicates she is not looking for picture book "texts", which means she is looking for picture book illustrators.

@mgmystery Some agents say to just skip it if you don't have anything to include. I'm not sure how strict this particular agent is, but unless the query is for non-fiction, I would skip the bio details/reason for writing. I've never heard of an agent passing someone over for a fiction project simply based on lack of bio details--if they're interested, they're interested. But YMMV.

Her guidelines say a query with a little bit about the author and why you chose to write this book. I don't have writing credits and usually don't add a bio. Did anyone just skip it in favor of a regular query?
