    The Karpfinger Agency (Barney Karpfinger)

    Hello, All.

    Anyone had experience with Inge De Taeye at the Karpfinger Agency or knowledge about this agency in general. Besides a note on P&E saying they are not taking very many new clients on and some information on Mr. Karpfinger and Liv Blumer (who I believe has moved on), I had trouble finding any information specific to Ms. De Taeye.

    Thanks in advance!

    Sorry this isn't any help, but Ms de Taeye appears to have no web presence that I can discover. The only info specific to her was a phone listing that confirmed she did live in NYC.
    A fair amount on the Karpfinger Agency, though. Is she definitely an agent, or an assistant, perhaps?

    I'm not really sure. She said "we" are looking forward to reading your ms, and I queried Barney Karpfinger, so perhaps she is speaking for him? Or perhaps all his ms get read by her first? Or she's a new agent there? Not sure.

    I know Mr. Karpfinger is great, so I'm guessing anyone working with him is wonderful. Just wondered if anyone knew more.

    Thanks for the help.

    I found this acknowledgement, FWIW as a clue to what she represents.

    Anyone have any recent experience with this agency? I am thinking about sending them a query.

    hi all

    Sent a snail mail query to Mr. Karpfinger on Jan 12th and got an email request for 100 pages from Inge De Taeye, writing on behalf of Mr. Karpfinger.

    Anyone have any updated info on him? Not much info on the site but it seems he reps Jonathan Kellerman, which ain't bad!

    Alas... got the "R" today. Just a form email but they do turn around partials pretty quick!
