A literary agent I want to query also asks for a sample chapter to be sent with the query.  Does this have to be the first chapter or any chapter?

Usually its the first chapter. Just make sure it packs alot of punch and the first page is very tight and grabs the reader.

 

Best of luck Jami, keep us posted of how it goes.
