Offer of Rep: 8/03—yay!

Molly is smart, personable, well-read, and has a great sense of humor. She's spent time on the editorial side of publishing and brings that expertise to her work with clients, which is a big plus in my book.

I'd queried Molly on 8/16/17 just before she closed for queries, and she kindly passed my query to Jenny Bent, who asked for the full on 9/6/17.
