I've requeried her awhile ago and haven't heard back.

On 3/4/16, I've requeried her with Venom. After a two week nudge, it's CNR. I'll try her this summer with Chain Reaction.

It looks like she's open again to queries and even has an associate agent: Faye Atchison.

ALthough she's closed to queries, she's obviously looking for new talent since she's attending the Writers Digest Conference West and is accepting pitches there... maybe worth querying?

On the off shot, I tried her anyway via snail mail. I sent her a query via snail mail on 2/17 and heard back from her today--not accepting new clients. Check the website often for updates.
