she will not be open to submissions until fall of 2022, if not winter 2023. Her colleagues Dorian Maffei and Lisa Abellera represent the same genres and age ranges she does, so in the interim please consider submitting to them.

[via website] She is eager to further build her client list in fiction, both children and adult. She reads widely and enjoys all fiction genres, but is especially seeking bookclub fiction with light speculative elements, female detective stories, whimsical middle-grade, and young adult that explores identity and culture.

She does not represent non-fiction (including memoir), picture books, or self-published novels (although she will consider your next project).

Has anyone seen an updated update (!) on when she might reopen to queries? I know she was thinking March 2021 but wondering if there's an updated target timeline.

Very nice form rejection, but it does look there there was some added personalization at the end because she said "Keep going with it. I do think you have a fresh vision with lots of potential. I wish you the best of luck" and that's a comment I haven't quite seen in others.

Personalized Rejection (listed as "form") 10/15/2020

It feels wrong to classify this one as a "form rejection" because it was actually a super kind personal rejection (but there's no option for that on querytracker). She said I have a lot of potential and that I'm a skilled writer, but she felt the opening pages were too intense for her, which is really fair because it is a bit of an intense novel. I was holding my breath for this one, but even though she rejected it, she made me feel happy and encouraged to keep querying, so I appreciate that a ton!

Personalized feedback, which included suggestions/ideas on what to change--which is unfortunate only because I had implemented similar suggestions since querying her, which were made by another agent. Too bad I hadn't sent her my revisions. I would definitely re-query. She said a lot of nice and encouraging things too.

Very nice, personalized rejection. She said I had an interesting concept, but she's generally not a fan of ghost POV's. (Mental note, everyone.) I'm bummed, as she was my top pick (and I enjoyed being in the "maybe pile" for so long). However, I appreciate the personal response.

I’m crushed that I won’t get to work with Mary! To all those who submitted a little while ago and are still waiting, keep the hope - I inferred from her rejection letter that she has a maybe pile.

Mary is hands-down one of the nicest agents out there. You can tell she really cares about writers. Even in a rejection, she is so encouraging.

@ NHWriter_bipoc_she_her and @SugarMagnolia I've had a query out with her since 8/11. I'm assuming it's in a maybe pile she hasn't gotten back to yet. Earlier in the fall, she posted something on twitter about having COVID and being affected by the wildfires in CA, and for authors to expect longer than usual response times. So I'm assuming I was put in a maybe pile that she just hasn't had to time to fully go through yet. I've queried her with other projects and always gotten responses.
