wittylogin - I don't think she wants the full MS attached to the query. I think she is letting you know her parameters if you get a full request.

Their general submission page says to send first 5 pages in the body of the query email, but Lisa Gallagher's bio page contradicts this by saying: "Submission Guidelines: Please submit your manuscript or proposal to as a Word document: double spaced, 12pt, Times New Roman."

I've never seen an agent request the full MS be attached to the query....
