OFFER of rep! 4/02/2020
4/4/2020 declined offer. Shannon seems like a wonderful person to work with. We had a great call, and I’m sure any author would have a great working relationship. I had 6 offers, and made the difficult decision to go with the one I clicked best with.

9/7/19 pitched 40k MG fantasy/adventure at writer's conference. Ms. Hassan asked to see the first 50 pages.
9/13/19 emailed first 50 pages
10/3/19 ER: "Thanks very much for the opportunity to read some of your manuscript. Although I enjoyed your writing, I am afraid I am going to pass on the chance to go further with the story, as it does not feel quite right for my current list. Thanks again, and I wish you the best of luck with your novel. Best, Shannon"

A polite rejection.
"Thank you so much for thinking of me, but this does not sound like a fit for my list at this time.
Thanks again for your query, and I wish you the best of luck with your book."

Best, Shannon
