Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Contemporary Women's fiction with a multicultural theme - I queried her and waited 90 days before giving up. Then after 102 days she asked for a partial manuscript! I sent it off - fingers crossed!

Thanks for posting that, Munchi5gal! Wow. July 2015? Really? Guess she went out of sequence.

Good luck to everyone who CNR'd thinking their query was dead... maybe there's a chance when you least expect it! :)

Tweeted 4/25/16: "#writers who have queried me: I have queries dates all the way back to July '15. I apologize for my terrible response time... Will start to dig through them soon!"

Had already decided I wasn't going to hear back on this one and then she requested a partial. Always awesome!

Thanks for your query letter. After careful consideration, I have unfortunately come to the conclusion that this is not something I wish to pursue, and therefore, must pass.

Thank you for thinking of me, and your patience. I wish you the best as you move forward with your project!

For those still waiting for a response, she said via twitter on 12/13 that she had over 700 queries waiting for responses, so don't close her out just yet :)

I am elated. Katie is very editorial and willing to work with me on revisions to make my novel the best it can be before going out on submission.
