Full MS submitted after agent request on Twitter 09.25.22

Update: Rec'd an email from Cathie on 04.15.23, assuring me that she hadn't forgotten about my full, and that I would hear back from her by the end of the summer. She even provided a link so that I could upload the most up-to-date version of my manuscript, which was great since I had done some tweaking to my original submission. She is so kind and supportive.
