Queried via email 4/17/24, 109k upmarket/literary historical fiction.

*technically* querying her before the non-response window with fellow Sanford agent Rachel Dillon Fried, but Fried hasn't responded to someone since...2022. I personally love my novel, but not gonna assume I'm the exception here lol.

Partial request (50 pgs): 4/25

Fingers crossed!

Understand how busy agents are, but still (foolishly?) wish for a response. Sigh.
