I know that having a short biographical section in a query is not really a make-or-break issue either way, but I don't want to leave it out if it would be beneficial.
I'm working on preparing a query for a historical fiction. I have a B.A. in general historical studies and an M.A. in a more narrowed field of history, but which is not directly applicable to the setting of my manuscript. Should I mention this or would it be seen as useless information to the query? I want to present competence with historical understanding, but I also don't want to overplay what might not be of interest to an agent.
