Emailed with nudge: 01/20/2021, she responded the same day to say she was sorry she hadn't gotten back to me sooner, and that considering pandemic circumstances she won't be taking on any new clients at this time. (A publisher recommended her to me and even with the introduction she wasn't interested in taking on new clients. For anyone considering querying her at this time.) Very kind and conversational :)

10/8/20 Very kind step aside. She did say that with all that's happening in the world right now she's currently focusing on her current authors rather than signing new ones.

I just searched for her on Twitter and it says her account was suspended for violating Twitter rules. (????)
