(Note: Website says to allow 3 months, but agent has requested fulls in the time since I queried, so I'm fine with calling this a NRNI)

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 :)
