Accepts Queries Via...

Snail-Mail: No

E-Mail: Yes

Online Form: Yes

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".

Query Guidelines

The first five pages of text for a longer work, or the full manuscript for a picture book text should be submitted below the query letter in the text body of the email, not as an attachment. Art samples or dummy texts should be inserted as links in the body of the query letter.

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

@Bailey01: I submitted via form and got a request, though it initially went to my spam folder (so glad I caught it!). So I know using the form works.

A bit confused about her submission info. On her individual page, it says to submit by email. However on the Trident page it says for unpublished authors to submit via the online form. Not sure which is the "right" way to do did you guys choose? THANKS!

Nudge with offer of rep: 4/22/16. She responded with FR.
Deadline passed with no response to full. Although I didn't ask for a confirmation that she received the ms. Maybe something went wrong with my email.
Update: Got an email apologizing for her delay. She had tech problems last week.
