From her website
Deidre Knight established The Knight Agency in 1996 after working in the entertainment industry. In the years since that time, she has built a dynamic, bestselling client list, placing nearly eight hundred titles in a broad range of categories, including romance, women's fiction, personal finance, business, popular culture, African American history, self-help, religion, health, and parenting. Her recent sales include books placed with Penguin Putnam, Random House, St. Martin's, Warner, Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins, Harlequin/Silhouette, Doubleday, Tyndale, Zondervan, Bethany House, and WaterBrook. Deidre's clients have appeared on all the major bestseller lists, including the New York Times, USA Today, Publisher's Weekly, CBA, and LA Times Bestseller Lists, as well as's Hot 100 List. Her authors have won countless awards, including the coveted RITA, the Gold Medallion, the Walden Books Award for Best New Author, and many others. She belongs to The Association of Authors' Representatives and Romance Writers of America. A native Atlantan, Deidre is listed in Who's Who in the Southeast and in Who's Who in America.

Deidre is currently seeking Young adult and Middle grade fiction, Inspirational fiction and non fiction, Romance, Womens Fiction, Fantasy, General non fiction, and Thrillers
On a personal note, I find Deidre Knight to be one of the most upbeat, positive people I've ever virtually met. Not only in publishing, but in general. If you're lucky enough to have her for your agent, you will be one happy author. To top it off, she writes amazing books herself.
