Looks like the agency has closed. Their website is gone, and according to this discussion on AW, Caren has moved on to other things. http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=89726&page=14

10/17, I queried her. Today I've heard back--closed until next year for submissions. Will try her in January 2012.

Thank you for your submission to Johnson Lit Agency. We read your query and have come to the conclusion that it is not something we wish to pursue.
 
Best of luck with your writing career.

Heard back after my Twitter pitch request. She liked the premise, but the execution didn't stand out in the crowd. C'est la vie. I'll just have to keep trying, right? *grin*

You're right abelston, it does say that. But actually, that post was made by Elana Roth. She is open to queries, but Caren is not.

E Queried 09/01/10 thinking she was open to queries. Read later that day on her website she was still closed. Was shocked to see request for full ms and synopsis 09/07/10. I was expecting a form R. :-))
