Samantha McFerrin

Samantha McFerrin is an editor at Harcourt Children's Books in New York.She specializes in picture books (both fiction and nonfiction), chapter books, and middle grade and YA fiction.Books she has edited include Just a Minute: A Trickster Tale and Counting Book by Yuyi Morales, which received the 2004 Pura Belpré Award and starred reviews from Kirkus and Booklist; and the forthcoming Bebé Goes Shopping by Susan Middleton Elya, illustrated by Steven Salerno; and Hardworking Puppies by Lynn Reiser.A few subjects that really grab her attention these days are little-known stories about well-known people, novels for reluctant readers (though, not necessarily sport stories), sweet middle grade stories, and YA novels told from a unique cultural perspective.She's always on the lookout for talented new illustrators and writers.

Samantha McFerrin, Editor
Harcourt Children's Books (2004)
Samantha McFerrin graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a bachelor's degree in English and an emphasis in journalism and film. In May 2003, she decided to move from San Francisco, where she was working as an assistant editor with Chronicle Books, to New York. She wanted to become part of the traditional New York children's book publishing community. Working as a children's book editor with Harcourt has been a dream come true.
Harcourt only accepts manuscripts sent by agents. Samantha is no longer able to accept unsolicited manuscripts at her New York address except from writers and illustrators she meets at conferences.
