    No experience with them, but it looks like they've been around and have some solid sales here and there. Mostly non-fiction, but one agent is looking at YA fiction, which has me interested.

    Thanks. It does appear they've been around awhile. They must be pretty low-key.

    I found 34 hits on Amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss?ur...Agency&x=0&y=0

    This is my favorite book found in abundance in my local library:
    http://www.amazon.com/Getting-Your-B...594323&sr=1-13

    And from this page, you can see the credentials:
    http://doecooveragency.com/about.htm
    At the bottom of this page, you'll this critical information "We do not represent romance, poetry, screenplays, fantasy, or science fiction."

    I met Doe many years ago in Cambridge, MA -- she's a nice person, and before becoming a non-fiction agent, worked at one of the major non-fiction houses. I can't remember which, but I believe one of the houses publishing lots of textbooks. In the 1980s she took on an associate to give fiction a try. That person didn't work out because she didn't sell anything. I actually remember her name because it was a lovely Italian name, but no point posting it here for google purposes because she left the industry.

    I received a full request from their YA agent, Amanda Lewis, this morning. She was very nice in her query reply and stated she liked the sample pages I sent with the query and would like to read on. If I have other communication with her, I'll let you all know!

    Since these posts Amanda Lewis seems to have left the agency. She's no longer listed on their page: http://doecooveragency.com/about.htm
    and on Literary Rambles it says she's no longer there
