Flipping through dedications on Google Books, I found a regular pattern of books acknowledging her from the '70s thru the '90s, then nothing until one (1) in 2008 (and nothing thereafter). So, unless anyone has evidence otherwise, I'm labeling her inactive.

In '12, changed name to Mary Yost Books (perhaps due to a legal judgment). Still no sign of further agenting activity.
