    Her LitMatch profile was "Last Updated: 8/30/2007." The phone number on Agent Query is disconnected but the fax number is still working.

    Just cause LitMatch updated her profile doesn't make it accurate. That update was done by them, not by her. Of the "clients" they list for her, none have published a book since 2005. If you check that AgentQuery list, those "recent sales" are all old too.

    Look, there are lots of agents out there. Why waste your time on one who seems to be retired?

    You took the words right out of my mouth (or right off of my keyboard).
