I don't see her listed on the Writers House website anymore. I don't suppose anyone knows where she is Susan was my agent at one time -- it didn't work out, but I wish her well and I hope she's okay.

Sent query letter July 12, 2022. Rejected via form letter from her assistant less than 24 hours later. Middle-grade novel.

Queried Ms Cohen here:

Second, I queried today, and within ten minutes, she answered: "I do wish you the best of luck with your writing, but since my mother is very ill, I cannot take on new clients at the moment. Thank you for your understanding, Susan Cohen."

Sending her family as much strength as possible right now.

Small update: there appears to be two Susan Cohen agents, both reputable and real. I'm gonna leave this here for people who are looking.
