She is interested in writing that feels fresh, surprising, and above all, must sing off the page. A great addition to her list would be a domestic thriller or clever drama with a twist you really don't see coming, writing that completely engages and great characters you really care about. She is always on the lookout for clever, accessible non-fiction that looks at everyday life in a new light. Sophie also represents children's books for ages 9+ and would love to find a new YA writer who is telling a great story in a different, original way.

Submitted 3 chpts + synopsis Feb 2021 - response time meant to be 3-4 weeks. Got automatic response to confirm receipt. Sophie says she reads all submissions within one month, usually much quicker but won't respond unless interested.

I queried yesterday (though I did not use this link on Query tracker) and it also seemed to go through, though I did not get a confirmation email either. Not all agencies send them.

It seems to be back.

Something weird is going on because I am able to bring up her site, when I don't follow the link.
01/10/2018 10:28 AM
I queried her on Monday the 8th. I didn't receive a confirmation email, but as far as I know everything went through.

Has anyone who queried before Patrick’s comment received a confirmation email? Thanks!

Strange. It worked just yesterday when I added her. It may be a temporary interruption. I'll mark her as closed for now (since her email may not be working either) and wait and see if things come back.

Patrick - The link for the website does not work. it directs you to a "Want to build your own website?" link. I googled the agency and found it that way. i could not see a difference between the web address here and what I found when I searched, so I don't know why it does not work.

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