I checked out her receptivity to the Thriller/Suspense genre. Within 3 pages of submitted queries, not one request for a partial, much less a full, since 2008. Why she is listed as interested in this genre is beyond me.

Her response was personalized, thanked me for the nudge, complimented the general premise of my query/novel, but the voice of the pages wasn't for her and so she doesn't feel like she'd be the best agent for it. She seems lovely!
