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.

Contemporary Women's Fiction with a multicultural theme - She responded after 8 days and asked for the full manuscript! Fingers crossed!

I don't understand why the website said she's open to queries, because based on these comments, she's been closed to new clients for years now.

Form rejection: She's not taking any new titles now. Their site says you can query her through the Submissions site (which I did), but I guess she's not actually taking anything...?

Dear [my name],

Thank you very much for submitting your project to me for consideration. I am not adding many new titles to my list at present, and thus must respectfully decline.

I wish you the best of luck with your work -

I'm glad I checked here while waiting for an answer to a friend on how many pages is a good sample. I won't spend the time.

OF: Feb 19
ER: Feb 20 (same 'not adding many new titles' form BS as below. Sorry. It just irks. If she's not taking new clients, why is she open to queries? There's 10 minutes of my life I'll never get back. I guess I should have checked the comments on here before I bothered to query her, not after. My bad.)

Has anyone heard back from her? I queried on 8/3/2014 through submittable and haven't heard anything. When I check the site, it just says "In Progress." whatever that means.

FYI to save time for other folks who may be submitting YA or children's manuscripts to her, she responded back to my query that she is no longer taking on Young Adult and Children's titles. I appreciated that she took the time to reply to me and explain this. (I submitted a PB.)
