Thanks, Casey! She may not be looking for new clients, but it's still useful to have this information.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Thanks Casey. Let us know if you find out anything more. Since she likes fantasy, I might check her out.

Thermocline said...

Wow. There must not be much available online about her. You're usually able to dig up a huge amount of information.

Amie Kaufman said...

Thanks! I'm interested in querying her and have been having a lot of trouble finding info. Looking forward to seeing if you receive an more.

Casey McCormick said...

Hi Casey, it’s been years since the Barbara Kouts profile and follow-up comments, but I’m going to try anyway! I’m trying to reach her about TV and film rights, but my email has gone unanswered. I probably have outdated info.
Do you have current contact info? I would SO appreciate some guidance. Thank you!

Hi Sunta, Casey left the blog in 2015. I don't have any updated info on Barbara and am not planning to update her profile since Casey pulled it off the site years ago. My recommendation would be to follow her agency's submission guidelines on contacting her. Good luck.
