lizbeth,
Her website now says she is open. She probably just forgot to turn off her email auto responder.

And sometimes you accidentally query an agent who is, in fact, closed to queries. Face-palm.

10/10/16: EQ to Jenny Bent for 86k romantic suspense
10/12/16: Jenny forwarded query to Louise Fury, who requested a full
10/12/16: Full sent, receipt confirmed within a couple of hours
10/25/16: Nudged with offer of rep
11/2/16: Offer of rep made! I ended up turning her down to go with a different agent, but Louise is the real deal. Expects quality from her authors and doesn't beat around the bush, but is also very knowledgeable and professional.
