"Unfortunately" for her, I'm already agented (was picked up about two weeks or so after I queried her, but wasn't sure how to reach out to her with the general email)! She said that she wasn't sure if my book was for her but was still intrigued to read a full. I apologized to her for not getting to her in time about being agented, she got back to me and seemed so nice about it and wished me luck. She seems like a cool and professional agent. Good luck, everyone!

Although Kristin is listed here and on updated agents, I couldn't find her listed as an agent on the main page of QueryTracker. Sent query anyway to Inkwell. The Reports page shows 7 submissions sent to her, mine wasn't counted (I assume since she's not listed in Agents section). I did sent a query to Ms Moorjani who was listed somewhere as a new agent at Inkwell back in June but I don't think she ever began working there.

From Publisher's Lunch 6/2018: Former editor-in-chief of Real Simple Kristin van Ogtrop will join Inkwell Management as a literary agent. She will represent memoir, biography, commercial women’s fiction, lifestyle and “big idea books driven by counterintuitive thinking.” Inkwell partners, Kimberly Witherspoon, Richard Pine and Michael Carlisle write: “Though Kristin was a terrifically successful magazine editor, we are certain that she was actually born to be an agent. Her experience with the written word and brand-building, along with her optimism and creativity, are the heart of her unique strengths and what will be the key to her flourishing in her new career.”
