Same here, Kerry. She requested my full and I hadn't heard back. Nudged last week. Oh well. She'll be perfect in this job, though.

I wish her luck and scratch her name off my list for future querying.

Wow, what a bummer.

I wondered why she did not participate in Cupid's Speed Dating Contest... Now I guess we know why.

She says she has been offered her "dream job." Pretty cool for her; bad new for us.

Ugh. She requested my full in January :(

I guess it's better than having landed a contract with her then having this happen later, but still....

patrick, i think its safe to add ms. barnes to the list of ya agents...

from website "Meredith is interested in a wide range of engaging fiction for all ages, including literary, women’s, thrillers, and crime fiction. She is open to science fiction and fantasy that has something new to offer the genres. She does not represent early readers or children’s picture books. "

it also appears that her first sale as an agent was a YA novel as well.

My request for a full from her came from the assistant@ address.
