SFF is not listed on her QT genres, but her PM Marketplace page lists SFF as a genre she accepts, and she has 19 SFF deals listed on her PM Dealmaker pages, including one as Aug 10, 2021.

*Edit* If you dig deep enough in her agency description she does say she's accepting a very restricted list of genres at this time.

Hi engstromdd,
Her genre list is based on the genres she includes on her QueryManager form.

Rejected within a few days with the following comments (Suspense/Women's fiction):

"I am very selective about taking on new clients. Projects from my clients must have stellar world building, characters that leap off the page, pacing that is relentless, and a story that entices the reader to take its journey with the characters. I know that’s a tall order, but if your writing is lacking in any of those areas, I’ll pass on it."

Thanks Patrick! Yeah, was thinking perhaps all the elements she requests kind of add up to what otherwise would be covered in a letter.
