Profile Summary

There is little to no information on Samantha Ferris available. The agency she works for, The Knight Agency (now incorporating what used to be Peter Knight Book Associates), does not publish any information regarding the agents who work there. Other than the brief entries within directories such as The Writers' and Artists' Yearbook, Samantha's name rarely pops up in industry information.

According to writer Liberty Forrest's website, Samantha is her agent. Liberty also notes that Samantha is responsible for the non-fiction lists at The Knight Agency, but Agent Hunter has been unable to confirm this information. 

Without further information, we are unable to confirm what kinds of manuscripts Samantha is interested in or if she is even currently accepting submissions. If you do wish to try your luck with this agent, there is a contact form on the website. We suggest querying whether she is interested in receiving submissions and what her interests are before sending an unsolicited manuscript.
