Successful Queries: Agent Michelle Wolfson and 'Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon'

This series is called "Successful Queries" and I'm posting actual query letters that succeeded in getting writers signed with agents.

The first installment of this series is with agent Michelle Wolfson (Wolfson Literary), and her client, Mark Di Vincenzo, and his book, Buy Ketchup in May and Fly at Noon: A Guide to the Best Time to Buy This, Do That and Go There.
