Looks like she's open to general subs again, per agency website:

"Please feel free to submit your work to Katherine at [email] and include either the first fifty pages of your manuscript (for fiction) or your full proposal (for non-fiction) as an attached Word document. She will respond within three to four weeks if she is interested in seeing more."

Queried her with my literary novel (some months ago). She said the writing in the sample pages wasn't for her, but was very cordial about the idea, and she encouraged me to try others. Struck me as a good person.

Submission Monday night, (very sweet) rejection Tuesday morning. At least she's caught up and she responds.

@Jill_Hackett, where do you see that there are no query responses? The Data Explorer shows numerous recent (and speedy) responses to queries, both positive and negative.

It appears she might not be active. No query responses recently...

She writes the same pleasant form letter every time and generally very quickly. Large current client list...very selective etc...I don't think everything gets read. Would avoid sending to her in future.
