Both seem to have the right experience. They list clients and their experience, so I don't see why not go with them. The only thing that concerns me is that Nina Ryan is listed as an agent and independant editor, but I'm not sure exactly what is meant by that whether it's just that she's got editor experience or works actively as both agent and editor. Hopefully someone might be able to clear that up.

As of mid-'16, became The Cowles Agency (site still Coming Soon at http://www.cowlesagency.com/). No Tw activity since '15, and last sale was early '16. Anyone have recent contact?
