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.

Does she represent picture books? On the agency website it only says "Mackenzie represents a very select list of upmarket commercial/literary adult and YA novels ."

On 2/24/15, I've requeried Mackenzie with Chain Reaction. Today I've heard back from her with a pass--interesting premise, not for her. I might try Jaida with Venom this spring, since her MSWL tweets states thrillers.

On Monday, 11/11/15, I've queried Mackenzie with my requery for Venom. Today I've heard back from her--interesting premise, but not quite right for her list at this time. I'll try Joanna Volpe next month with Venom.

Many thanks for querying me. This certainly sounds like an interesting and moving premise for a novel, but I'm sorry to say it's not quite right for my list at this time. I appreciate your trying me though and hope you find the right home for your work very soon.
