What Helix said. I've heard nothing but good things about her. I would definitely submit to her.

Jo is my agent. She's fast, funny, bright as anything and very supportive. Gives terrific editorial advice; reads and re-reads and re-re-reads. I love her to bits. Also her office is staffed with happy, clever people - which I think is a very good sign.

Several thumbs up from me, and lots of gold stars as well.

ETA: She has a great twitter-game, too... ;)

That's great to hear mccardey! She would be a long shot for me, since she only occasionally reps US writers, but when she reopens for queries I'm going to take that shot anyway, because I think the project I'm querying might be a good match for her. What's the harm in trying? :Shrug:

To be completely superficial, I think it would be pretty cool to be able to say, 'My agent, based in Somerset House.'! When I lived in London I walked past that place twice a day. Seriously impressive. :D

London real estate is so not superficial.

(I love London. My home town. Best city in the world.)
