(But I'd already found rep elsewhere and forgotten all about querying her.)

For the sake of everyone monitoring their query to Sarah throughout July:

08/13 nudged following an Offer of Representation from another agent
08/16 nice rejection, saying she could see why another agent offered rep but it wasn't for her. Congratulated me on the offer and wished luck for the future.
