4/16 It was recently announced that she's the new Head of Atria, so most likely she won't be agenting anymore.

I gave her a nudge of congrats and asked if she'll still be an agent and if my work is still being considered.

4/20

She responded! She told me that she won't be taking on any novels in her new position, so that's that with that, and obviously she won't be agenting at Gernert or agenting in general for that matter. Happy for her though, she's fabulous.
