Always verify agent's information before sending your query. Verify the agent's query preferences, contact information, genres of interest, and if the agent is still open to queries.

Although QueryTracker tries to stay current, it is not always easy. Never trust any single source for agent information (and yes, this includes QueryTracker).

Review the user comments for more information, and always follow exactly what it says on the agent's website.

And NEVER give money to an "agent".

Leave comments about your experiences with this literary agent, or read what other authors have to say.

Just pitched my women's fic project live to Elizabeth at a conference. It was a bust, really. She is focusing on non-fiction genres now. :'(

I took advantage of the 10 minutes though; she listened to my pitch and answered some general questions, which was quite helpful.

Also, her office location has changed (she's in Milwaukee) although her mailing address may remain in NY.
