Angela Knight
New York Times Bestselling Author

South Carolina is where Angela Knight calls home along with her husband Michael, a polygraph examiner and hostage negotiator for the county’s Sheriff’s Office, and together have their grown son, Anthony. Angela’s first book was written in pencil and illustrated in crayon at just nine years old. A few years later she read The Wolf and the Dove and fell in love with romance. Besides her fiction work, Angela’s publishing career includes a stint as a comic book writer and ten years as a newspaper reporter, where several of her stories won South Carolina Press Association awards.

In 1996, Angela discovered small press publisher Red Sage and realized her dream of romance publication in the company’s Secrets 2 anthology. She went on to publish several more novellas in Secrets before editor Cindy Hwang discovered her work there and asked if she’d be interested in writing for Berkley, where Angela excitedly accepted.

Whatever success she has enjoyed, she attributes to the marvelous editors she’s had over the years. David Anthony Kraft and Dwight Zimmerman at Comics Interview taught her the nuts and bolts of fiction writing. Alexandria Kendall of Red Sage discovered her talent for romance writing and encouraged her to believe in herself. And she will be forever grateful to Berkley editor Cindy Hwang, who has been unfailingly supportive.
