I had the opportunity to meet Annie last August at the Southern California Writers' Conference. I was pretty nervous because she was the first agent I'd ever met, though I had no reason to feel that way since she wasn't looking for the type of fiction I wrote and I had no intention of pitching to her.
Talking with her humanized literary agents--before, they all seemed like intimidating gatekeepers thousands of miles away. Talking with her also made me realize the existence of agents on the West Coast that I'd never really considered before. I just always thought (not seriously) that living in New York was a prerequisite to becoming an agent.
All of this information is anecdotal, but I just wanted to say that she's a nice person, and that she indirectly helped me, quantifying the whole publishing journey. I'd never felt so optimistic about getting published after I met with her.
