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.

Just read here on Query Tracker that Kathleen was formerly with Harold Ober but now her whereabouts are unknown. That's kinda strange. Pretty bummed too, I sent her my query a few months ago.

according to the website, there is only one way to submit and that is by mail. There are names of Editors and brief list of areas of interest. No personality given for any of the Agents.

Kathleen represented Harold Ober Associates at Write On Con so I assume she's still with them.

Kathleen Zakhar doesn't appear to be with the company any more. The company claims submissions by snail mail only now.

KellyE, I think a lot of us went by her Writer's Digest profile, which states she takes both paper and email queries and had instructions on how to query via email. But it is definitely confusing.

I think my query is lost in e-mail purgatory. Second query sent 8/30. Still no response.
