CNR: Feb 11, 2023 I was still living in North America when I queried. Although I'm now in Europe, maybe it didn't matter.

The guidelines on her (new) agency's website don't make it clear whether the query letter, synopsis, and sample pages are to be sent as attachments or included in the body of the e-mail. Anybody know what she prefers?

Edit: I'm leaving this question here in case an answer would be useful to others, but I've just realized it's a moot point for me, since per her new agency's guidelines, she doesn't accept queries from North America.

@zenoviabards I had her on a Do Not Query list along with the rest of her former agency because of that. But will consider querying her now.

I submitted to Therese in January and discovered that one of the other agents later blocked me on twitter despite me never interacting with them. I presume they checked out my twitter after my submission went to their agency's email and saw my tweets in support of trans people which are a heavy contrast with their beliefs. There is a chance they stumbled across me in another way. I can't tell people who to submit to and not to submit to, but especially if you are trans or support the trans community, I recommend you not waste your time and find another agency because you are unlikely to get far here.

This was in regards to Hardman & Swainson. Not her current agency.
