    A quick Google gives us a Bantam hardcover in summer '06 (One Last Breath by Stephen Booth). Penguin in 2005 (The Egyptian Coffin by Jane Jakeman).

    Patricia Moosbrugger is an independent literary agent who relocated to Albuquerque two years ago after eighteen years in the New York publishing world. She represents both fiction and narrative nonfiction authors with several national bestsellers. Upcoming nonfiction titles on her list include Sultana (Harper), a civil war story and Brave Vessel (Viking), the true story behind the shipwreck that inspired Shakespeare's The Tempest. Upcoming fiction titles include The Girl From Junchow (Berkley) by bestselling author Kate Furnivali, The Glass Blower (St. Martin's), a historical novel set in Venice, and A Rule for Murder (Minotaur) by award-winning mystery writer, Louise Penny.
    From PW deals 11/02/09:
    Louise Penny has signed a new three-book deal, for North American rights, with her current publisher, Minotaur. A rep at St. Martin's called the agreement a “major” one, with Minotaur publishing in partnership with Canadian house H.B. Fenn. Penny, a Times bestseller, saw a heavy push for her September 2009 title, The Brutal Telling, with Minotaur doing an announced 100,000-copy first printing; that book became a Barnes & Noble Recommends Main Selection. Agent Patricia Moosbrugger negotiated the deal with SMP executive editor Hope Dellon.

    Tks, Shadow. I got all that too. And she accepts email queries, by the way, though one of those sites says she does not. I want more on her sales etc etc. Anybody there who has worked with her, pl?

    Say, abdasgupta1, how did you discover that she takes email queries? Every one of the sites listed says that she doesn't. Thanks.

    The simplest answer being that she took my email query and has since been replying to each and every one of my mails. But I am in India, so that could be one reason.

    Having said that, let me tell you that she does not talk much:-( One or two sentences and you have to get the rest.

    I heard her speak at a SouthWest Writers program here in Albuquerque (where she's located). This was about a year ago, I'd guess. She was very professional, spoke about working her contacts in NYC from the Southwest, and struck me as capable, intelligent, and pleasant. I seem to recall her giving out her email address for queries, but that could have been a limited invitation to those attending the program. I didn't take particular note of how to query her since she doesn't represent my genres.

    Doubt that helps much, but there you go anyway. Best of luck.

    It's a year since the last post on Ms. Moosebrugger. Her website is still under construction. Hmmmmmm seems a bit fishy to me. What is the status on your contact with her, abdasgupta1?

    Ok, I signed up with Patty who was very enthusiastic and made me rewrite large chunks over 3 months. Then suddenly, I got a mail in June saying she was dropping the project. Period. Nothing else; except that she was very sorry and that she was having personal problems.
    That's all I know.
    My agent now is Al Longden.
    You could read this "Blind submission" http://is.gd/eRKWb to get an idea of how I landed Patty. She seemed bigtime at that point in time.
    Thanks

    Not finding recent sales for her. I did find, however, her paid review service: http://www.blueinkreviews.com/.
