Per email she's only taking on author-illustrator projects at the moment. Genres listed here include MG but she's not taking MG right now. She has an intern (Thornton Blease) looking at manuscripts in other categories.

khroochang, make sure you're not using a lot of red flag words in your query and that you are sending from a reputable email service. Those are the usual reasons for a query being mistaken for spam. Too many links can also cause problems. You're not using any profanity in the query are you? Hopefully your book isn't about a door-to-door viagra salesman, because if that's the case, you're doomed.
