  7. Always great to hear from a new agent!

    But in her interview she says she reps science fiction, but then later it says she doesn't rep science fiction. Which is right?

    1. Charlie,

      She's no longer accepting sci-fi. She was considering it last year but has narrowed her interests a little.

  13. Thanks for the spotlight. I queried her the other day . . . before I discovered her slow response time. Even for requests, you're looking at about a 3 month wait (according to QT data).
