I queried her on 01/15/2022. I can see from the Data Explorer that she sends a lot of requests, and very quickly, so when I saw that someone after me got a partial request, I marked her CNR after 5 days. Just got a rejection today (01/28/2022):

"Sounds like a wonderfully fun story, unfortunately I’m not taking on new clients at present. Wishing you the very best! HJ"

Yet there is a form open on her website for submissions, and I can see she has sent 3 partial requests since my query. Don't know why she bothered.
