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.

Angel, Flip Brophy is president of Sterling Lord, does not accept unsolicited queries, and focuses on non-fiction. If she does deign to reply, she will do so about nine months later. I had her as an agent years ago on another project, and she's a literary snob. Don't waste your time.
