About Courage Knight

I started writing stories in First Grade. I had a wonderful teacher, the rare breed that inspired and nurtured me. She was a published author of children's books, and I – being perhaps a bit of a teacher's pet – read every one of them.

I came from a large family, fourth out of five children, and shared a bedroom with my younger sister. She would pester me to tell her stories every night at bedtime. I whispered them to her, as we were supposed to go right to sleep. Invariably, she would fall asleep on my stories, but every night she begged me to tell her more. Sometimes her inattention irritated me, but it also gave me the opportunity to rewind and tell a favorite part of the story again – great practice for the rewriting process.

While raising my own brood of munchkins, I didn't write much of anything although I was gathering experience. I read whenever I could find five minutes to myself. I took a few workshops and courses, and I sold some nonfiction articles, but it wasn't until 1998 when I really began writing fiction.

My husband took a job in another state. I stayed behind with the children and tried to get ready for a move. The days were filled and busy, but the nights were long and lonely. I poured out my soul on the keyboard, and one night I uploaded a fan fiction novel to a fan website. The Internet was still something new to me – we'd had a computer for years, but had just joined the "world-wide web". Within days, I had over 200 emails from adoring fans pouring into my inbox.

And that is how my writing career began.
We bought a home, I moved in with my darling husband, got the children settled in the new neighborhood – but still wrangled time out of my hectic schedule to fulfill this deep need to put thoughts to paper and spin my tales. Over the next two years, I wrote 22 full-length novels of fan fiction. Then I branched off and started writing romance. Perhaps I've put another generation of Internet little sisters to sleep.
