UPDATE: Jen is very nice and definitely hungry for books and had some interesting feedback. I decided to go with another agent who had more experience and a smaller list who I think was a better fit for me. Jen was super kind and gracious and I'm wishing her tons of success.

Original: I am really looking forward to speaking with her (and she loves cats!)! Absolutely surreal experience to go from radio silence to suddenly activity all at once! I'm going to have some tough decisions to make.
