Looks like you might be right, Linda_Strader. No activity from this agent for several years now.

Publishers Marketplace indicates only three deals total and none since 2013...? Not sure if someone else found more for her.

On 10/14/10, I've sent her an equery and haven't heard back from her. Two weeks ago, I inquired and haven't heard back from her. As of today, it's closed/no response for my eco-thriller.

7/28: Queried her on 4/8, sent her a nudge two weeks ago. No response today.

9/20--requerying her for Venom. 1/5/12--I nudged her two weeks ago. Another no response.

Queried 1/21/10. Made a polite inquiry as to the status 5/13/10. No answer either time - apparently a lost cause, but it would have been nice to at least get a form rejection to add to my large collection....

celticgirl2u: Well, she is far from the maddening crowd in NYC...perhaps she does communication by pony express or smoke signals or literally uses snails for her mails. Or, she's a veeeeerrrrrrryyyyyy sllllllllooooooooowwwwww reeeaaaaddddeeeeeeeeeeeer.
