Hi nicoletaylor. I've seen lots of trouble with addresses. You should get a google or yahoo address (or something similar) and try that.

7/14, I've queried her for Chain Reaction. Two weeks ago, I nudged her. I'm closing it out and will requery her in late November.

11:28: Heard back from Kathi Paton on same query--not right for us. Oh well.

On 2/8, I've sent her a query for Venom. Today I've given her a nudge and heard back. Despite its merits, it's not for them.

According to Publisher's Marketplace this agent does not accept queries for fiction. She is only looking for non-fiction.

Sent e-mail query and received prompt response five days later. A rejection, short and to the point.
