I met her years ago when she was an editor, and her response included a line saying she remembered me, and then a form letter about how my project didn't match her tastes but encouraging me to query another project in the future.

I think she would be an amazing agent for her clients.

Update: Thanks writersblock88!

daizylublue: Did you mean she's only looking for picture book authors who are also illustrators, or that she's only looking for picture book authors who also write for other age levels?

zpinwheel: I saw her recently on an agent's panel, and my impression was that she was looking for PB authors who illustrate their own work.
