She has parted ways with the managing partners, which is understandable. The poor girl began at Paige Wheeler's agency and the next thing she knows, she's sucked into a massive merger and answerable not only to Paige, but to Scott Hoffman and Jeff Kleinman as well. Sure, she didn't sign on for such a group to begin with, and things did not develop to her liking once she was on board the runaway train.
If she likes being an agent, and she has a few clients that are attractive to another agency, she'll land on her feet. Going off on her own was mentioned as a possibility, but she hasn't been at the game very long and that might prove to be a bit of a risk. Helps to have profitable clients to rely on until building up the stable of royalty receiving authors.
What did she tell her clients, I have to wonder? Ride on, see you? How many people are out there now, once over the moon that she asked for their full, and now in misery because that full is going nowhere unless they can find a new agent? Brutal business, this publishing. And as soon as she announces that she's at a new agency or heading up her own, I'll be right in line, firing off a query.
