I pitched to her at the Writer's Digest 2017 conference. She asked to see the first 75 pages.

ER: 10/24/17 - one of the nicest, most personalized rejections I've ever received (if not the only personalized one I have received.) Ellen highlighted what she enjoyed about my work, which I appreciated.
