It seems she may no longer be an agent. She's not listed on Carol Mann's website, and her Twitter account shows that she's a production coordinator at Serial Box.

After an R&R with Lydia last year, I emailed her (8/24/17) to let her know I'd just finished a complete rewrite.

*Website states that if you hear nothing after 6 weeks consider it a no.
Query Tracker says she is closed to queries as of April 20th.
Will wait for a few weeks to see and then consider it a no and close out.

Drachen: did you query with the personalized email shown here and it bounced back? I sent one to that addy back in March and haven't heard anything. Wondering if I need to send again.
