How do we exactly query Ms. Claudia Ballard? I can't find any information on what she actually wants with the query.

I queried Claudia via email with just a query, no pages. Her assistant promptly replied that she is currently on maternity leave until fall and that if I'm still not repped by then, I should get back in touch. She said that querying without pages is the typical way to go.

Does anyone else find it odd that there's absolutely zero information on the William Morris website about any of their agents or how to contact them? Am I missing something? I can't find a bio for this agent anywhere. Why would they want to be so mysterious, unless they are totally uninterested in unsolicited queries?

EQ: 4/5/16

This immediately bounced back with MAILER-DAEMON, undeliverable. Just a query, zero attachments - wondering if their system or server is on maintenance or something. Will try again.

ER: 3/31 -- Very friendly step aside. It was clear she read the entire novel carefully. So close!
