My first request for pages! She asked for the first ~100 pages. Didn't go the way I hoped, but Heather was very professional and prompt, which I appreciate.

Friendly, semi-personal rejection from the email of her assistant (?). Said she loved the title but ultimately wasn't as excited about it as she needed to be to pursue representation.

memoir submission delegated to intern who loved the writing but said it read more like a romance than a memoir. LOL

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.
