Rena used to be my co-agent along with Deborah a few years back and I only left them because I thought I quit writing. She's amazing and well-connected and I believe she has the ability to comprehend diverse voices better than some agents because of her unique background (that she isn't US based and is bilingual). She's also a wonderful and sensitive person on top of that and is extremely supportive of her writers! I warmly recommend her.

As others have noted, her request was to "take a closer look" at the first fifty pages as a Word doc. Apparently my query went to her spam folder, which is the reason for the delay in her request.
