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.

4/4/16: Got confirmation of receipt, though the wording made it seem like they had requested a full and were receiving that. Weird.
FR: 4/27/16 from Samantha Brody. Sent same day. :)
4/29/16: Confirmed receipt of full.
