You're right Cordner. I included YA because of his "unless" statement. But, he still sounds very unlikely to accept it, so it has been removed from his profile.

Not sure why one of his genres listed here is YA. His profile on the agency website says in bold letters: "Please do not send him YA, unless there is clear adult appeal. "

Hopefully he'll respond soon, since he seems to take quite a while.
