Sad it didn't click for her, but she was kind enough to send detailed feedback about why. I knew it was a long shot anyway, since she doesn't generally do horror.

Though I was ultimately rejected, Michele was professional and kind throughout the process. She read two of my manuscripts (two queries, two full requests) and has championed my work through several months of thoughtful responses. You'd be lucky to have her as an agent.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
