I guess I'll just assume this is a CNR since she's left agenting.

I find full agency queries so confusing. Never sure how to address them.

It looks like she doesn't reply unless interested. This tweet was posted today: "I am all caught up on my queries. Now, I’m working my way through requested materials. #amquerying #querytip"

EQ - 5/5/18 - per their site guidelines, I sent my query to the general mailbox and not to Ms. Watson, in particular (although I did notate that I found them through her #tenqueries on mswishlist. Pasted the first 10 pages in. Got an auto-reply that said they'll only reply to queries when they're interested in seeing more.
