Not only FAST but she gave me really specific and encouraging feedback with editing suggestions! 11/10 would query again.

On her Twitter on August 1st she posted "Hi! I get this Q a lot, so-- @RossYoon is a nonfiction agency, but I'm expanding my list to include nonfiction + SFF".

I commented on one of her #mswl tweets about taking on fantasy to see if that included YA and she didn’t reply. So I think the answer is no YA?

Guess I closed it out a day too soon. Said it was promising and great to see a female heroine in a science fiction book, but it was not right for her list. Sent from an intern though, Jay Venables.

chrisaerith, Dara does accept fiction. She's new to the agency and they haven't updated their website yet.

Their website: We only represent adult nonfiction, from memoir and history to biography, humor, and popular science. We do not represent fiction, screenplays, poetry, YA, or children’s titles.

I don't understand? do they or do they not rep fiction? In the genres tab on querytracker they claim to rep fantasy fiction?

Queried her from #PitDark yesterday. She confirmed receipt and that she was looking forward to reading the pages. She must be seeking YA fiction for certain genres.

Queried her in response to a #pitdark like 18 May 2018. No confirmation of receipt as of 25 May 2018 and she doesn't represent my genre, so maybe it was a slip of her liking finger

Women's literary fiction. 90k

RJDavid, Ross Yoon only accepts Non-Fiction, but for whatever reason Dara seems to accept SFF as well. She's newer, so maybe they haven't updated? But she's definitely looking for it based on her Twitter.
