The agency was founded in October 2011 when Christopher Ferebee left his prior firm, Yates & Yates, to pursue additional opportunities both within and outside the Christian publishing market.
As a small agency, we work with a select number of authors and organizations having an outsized impact in their sphere of influence.
Christopher has served as a literary agent since 1999. For the first 12 years he served at the firm of Yates & Yates in Southern California, working with a talented team representing an incredible array of Christian authors, speakers and pastors.
Today he is focused on representing thought-provoking, life-changing and uplifting books from a variety of thought-leaders and world-changers. These are projects that seek to challenge the status quo in any number of arenas in our fast-changing world, lift up ideas that deserve your attention, or simply inspire you to be a better version of yourself.
