Name That Judge #8

The judge has been correctly named. Check the comments for the answer.

Ready for another of our little game of Name that Judge? Let's see if this one goes as quickly. There are 34 Query Kombat judges and all are agented or published writers with experience in this business.

Some have agreed to join me and give away a prize to whoever guesses their nickname. You can find their bios at Mike's blog, SC's blog, and my blog. (No, I'm not providing the links. Where's the fun in that? But look in the May archive.) I will provide the list of judge names. Guessed judges are marked off.

Jessica Kapp
Kathleen Allen
Tracy Townsend
Laura Heffernan
Max Wirestone
Kristin B. Wright
Mary Ann Marlowe
Betsy Aldredge
Carrie DuBois
Natasha Raulerson
Sarah Glenn Marsh
Amy Trueblood
Judy Clemens
Wade Albert White
Tatum Flynn
Kim Long
Jamie Howard
Richard Pearson
Melissa Caruso
Wendy Nikel
Christina June
J.C. Davis
Stephanie Scott
Carrie Ann
Kendra Young
Heather Powell-van Fleet
Amanda Heger
Annika Sharma
Rena Olsen
Cale Dietrich
Sharon Chriscoe
Marty Mayberry
Dan Koboldt
Maragaret Fortune

This judge's nickname was Mallory Pike. And they have provided a few hints:

(1) Jared Leto once offered her a cigarette in a dark alley. 
(2) Last year, she sent her agent a query for erotic Baby-Sitters Club fan fiction. 
(3) She rarely/never tweets writing advice.
(4) Her debut novel comes out in April 2016.
(5) In a movie about her life, she'd be played by a Victoria's Secret model. Or Tina Fey. Probably Tina Fey.

First one to correctly name this judge wins a three chapter critique (no more than 50 pages) or a signed copy of Powerless by Tera Childs and Tracy Deebs. Winner's choice! I'll put a time limit of five days on this, but hopefully we won't need to worry about such things.

Other rules. Let's see...

You don't have to have entered or been picked for Query Kombat to play. Anyone may try and Name That Judge. There will be other posts with fresh judges coming up soon. You may enter more than one Name That Judge post. You may only guess once on each post. You must leave a way to reach you--twitter handle or email address.
