Her profile on their website says she specializes in kidlit, so her genre list needs to be updated.

"Thank you for considering The Rights Factory for your representation. This sounds AWESOME! But I’m very behind at the moment, so I’m cc’ing my colleague, Lindsay Legget, here for her interest instead!"

Rejected: 10/31/16 with a very nice requection "This is a really excellent query, I have to say, but I’m afraid my list is very full at the moment. It’s a pass this time. I’m looking for more magic realism than fantasy these days."
If anyone has any magical realism stories, send them!
