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.

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.
