I sent it to her email directly. Their website wasn't clear where query submissions should go

In their guidelines, they do say the Info@ email - though they list the agents emails too. Probably best to go to the info one. I've had some requests from them in the past, but they are terrible CNR'ers. I would send in a partial, or even a full, and hear nothing back. I get it for the query, but if they request something, you think they'd have the courtesy. (They don't)

Patrick - When I googled their website, they say to send queries to, rather than directly to Barbara, as indicated here. What do you think?
