EQ: 9/20/17 99K Mystery/Thriller
ER: 9/21/17
She politely thanked me for the query but informed me she doesn't represent Mystery/Thrillers. I sent back a note letting her know that her QT profile shows Mystery and Thriller/Suspense, and her Publishers Marketplace entry shows General Fiction, which seems to have a fairly wide interpretation. Maybe she'll straighten it out, and I'll keep trying...

EQ 2/1/17
Request for Partial 2/1/17
Sent 'nudge' email 3/2/17; no response to that as of 3/24/17
Guess that explains why it looks like she hasn't been queried much...

Received a rejection, but she kindly let me know that gmail had shrunk my font size and made my query difficult to read. I appreciated her letting me know, so that other agents don't have to struggle. (And I'm now using the Mail app on my computer instead of Gmail's web thingy so I have better control over the font size, ugh.)

Responded long enough to say she doesn't rep YA.
