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.

Hi Mooky,
Everything looks OK on this end. It could be you had some other filters set during the search.

Patrick --

I was trying to look this agent/agency up and it doesn't show when I search under agent's name or agency name. I actually got to the page by following a google link (which took me right here). But I think something's screwy with the agant/agency name search feature on this one.
