87K mystery-- referred by one of her authors so I've submitted a letter and opening pages despite the obvious mismatch of genre and the fact that she's closed to queries. UPDATE: She's very personable and did indeed quickly pass my query to another agent.

Her website says MacKenzie Wolf is splitting into two agencies as of April 1, and neither principal is accepting unsolicited submissions at this time.

ER - 11/5/19 - Very nice note about my writing but said that she is "memoir'ed out at the moment." And this is going to be the problem.

EQ 6/2/16 with a personal referral
Rejection 6/3/16 via a very thoughtful, personal note from Gillian. She liked the concept but suggested it might be hard to sell to publishers without an existing platform. She advised that I start developing one from which to launch the book.

I've tried twice to email this agent. Each time, the message was returned as undeliverable. Her mailbox is full. Hopefully, she's off somewhere on a beach enjoying herself for a few weeks of vacation and will come back refreshed and excited about my book, if I can ever get the query to her!

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.
