Thanks bubblyian. I believe both addresses go to the same place, but I updated it here just to cut down on confusion.

Their website says the email address should be:"rena@dhliterary.com", not as shown on this website. I have submitted to both, just in case. I will let you know what happens....

Queried April 5, 2021
Received Request for 50 pages on May 24, 2021
Update: 6/8/21, forgot to add that this is for an Adult Contemporary Fantasy 105k words.
Update 6/13/21, she emailed to say she wasn't in love enough to offer rep. That's the closest I've ever gotten, so I feel motivated nonetheless.

My first request. I know nothing is set in stone, but I'm excited.

Cold queried Feb 16 2021 and received request for full March 21st.
Got an R&R request from a different agent on Friday April 2nd.
After chat with other agent, messaged to offer revision when it's ready (est. three or four weeks), as the R&R is non-exclusive.
She replied quickly with a friendly message saying to send it on when ready.
Thought I'd note this as R&Rs are a strange beast and people seem curious about how they go.
Revised ms sent April 23rd
Nudge with offer of rep 25 April 2021
CNR 5 April 2021
Replied day after nudge period closed to apologise for not finding time
