Hi Patrick, I received the auto reply from Ms. Sanders below. I think she's still not open to queries?

"Thank you for reaching out. I am currently on maternity leave, and
will return after October 4th.

If you are sending a query, please resend in October; I will be
deleting any queries sent during this time. If this is about a
manuscript I've already requested for consideration, or about anything
urgent, please reach out to Maddie Woda (maddie@mmqlit.com) and Maria
Massie (maria@mmqlit.com), and they will alert me.

Many thanks,
Rayhané"

Hello! I sent Ms. Sanders a query today but she's on maternity leave until after Labor Day. I received her auto reply below:

"Thank you for reaching out. I am currently on maternity leave, and
will return after Labor Day in September.

If you are sending a query, please resend after Labor Day; I will be
deleting any queries sent during this time."

Rayhané was recommended by a friend so before I CNR'd, I shot her a quick follow up. She got back right away and let me know she's winding things down for maternity leave and encouraged me to try others at the agency.
