Hi,

I found you while I was attempting to clarify the same agency. Hopefully not a dead-end. Checking PM, no listing for the agent or agency. One listing I googled says "...Trade non-fiction, food books, and cookbooks. Mail query letter..." At least that gives you the genre.

I don't know if this helps, but she's not listed in any of the three literary agent books that I have either. That doesn't mean a thing, but...if you can't find anything online about her and she's not listed, it probably means that you should tread lightly.

This is further confirmed on the website for Beth Hensperger (http://bethhensperger.com/bio.htm), which you can find by putting the agency name in Google and checking through the first page of results.

Given that Martha Casselman has retired and is clearly not soliciting clients, there doesn't seem to be much else to say.
