Like my mom used to say when one of her students treated her poorly, "What am I, chopped liver?"
So fair warning (to ease my guilty conscience)...
If you don't even call me by some combination of my real name (your choice) in your query, I'm just going to delete it.

Coincidence in a plot kills suspension of disbelief.
And weakens your character/tension by relieving conflict.
Make sure your query doesn't make it seem like a coincidence is there if it's not. And if it is, change your plot.

If you're querying, you should check your spam folder regularly for replies.
Just sayin'.
