Wow. Looking at her genre stats looks like she doesn't request anything. I see literally one positive reply on the whole spread sheet.

An article about her becoming an agent:

Given comments below, I'm not too hopeful she's agenting more than authoring but if she is, she has a great background.

EQ: August 20
CNR: November 04. According to data reports this agent hasn't responded to a single query or requested any mss. It's disappointing when agents who are authors themselves choose not to respond, knowing how important a reply is to a writer!
