Ms. Simmonds appears to be a one-woman agency in the UK. I'd queried her because my fantasy novel was British in style and seemed a good fit. My original query was Sept. 12, 2019. Despite multiple requests for status (1/3/2020, 2/25/2020, 6/30/2020, 8/31/2020, and 1/3/2021), she has never responded. It could be the pandemic has taken its toll on her agency.

Agent is listed as someone interested in horror. Checked website and agents, there seem to be no horror titles to their name. Most of the list seemed to be cooking books and children's literature.

Submitted an adult Horror (98k) (because they are marked as interested in horror) in April 2020 - have not heard back, but wasn't expecting to.
