    According to AgentQuery, she previously worked for Sandra Dijkstra.

    Venture is primarily non-fiction, but her profile at the company site says she does accept female lit fic.

    Good for you! Can I ask how long it took to get the request from the time you sent your query?

    Hmm. Site hasn't been updated since '09, and sales announcements stop in '10. Anyone have recent contact with them?
