Accepts Queries Via...

Snail-Mail: No

E-Mail: Yes

Online Form: No

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.

On 10/28/15, I queried her with Venom. I did get an out of office message and then nudged her two weeks ago. It's CNR. I'll try her in March with Chain Reaction.

5/11/16--On 3/25/16, I've queried her with Chain Reaction. Two weeks ago, I've nudged her. It's CNR. I'll try Sandra Bishop this summer with Venom.

I queried Amy Tompkins at this agency and I see she has no page on here so I figured I'd just post on here for the same agency.
