EQ 1/14/2023 (Just the query letter: no pages)
No response as of 4/18/2023, so I sent her a nudge and got the following email: "I will be away from my computer the week of April 17th attending the London Book Fair but will respond as soon as possible upon my return."

Sigh, speedy decline - 16 hours. While wishing for a different reply, do appreciate Marianne's promptness.

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.
