Chris Kepner appears to have started his agency in 2017, and his website has a 2017-2020 copyright, but his website doesn't have a list of successfully represented books or authors.

CNR @ 49 days I checked his website and it says not all queries will receive a response, and doesn't say when responses are given.

EQ: #SFFPit Request

I had queried this project to him earlier, with no word. Then, he requested a query/pages via Twitter (#SFFPit). No word from that, either, despite a nudge a few months after.

So, there's that.
