Fay Knowles is a Scottish-born author who has made The Bahamas her home. She has been writing since the age of nine, penned a children's adventure book at eleven and won a school essay competition at age fifteen.
After leaving school at sixteen, she trained in Devon, England, as a secretary, then newspaper reporter. At the age of twenty she set off to “work her way around the world”, first emigrating by ship to Canada. She worked as an editorial assistant for the former Canadian Food Journal and Gift Buyer, Toronto, for a few months. And then, to avoid a Canadian winter and to seek sunny climes, she took a Greyhound coach down across the U.S. from Toronto to Miami, en route for The Bahamas. She met her future husband Erskine in Nassau a month after that and they were married the following year. She jokes: “I never did travel the world!”
As well as getting by-lines in British and Bahamian newspapers, Fay’s articles have appeared in Westward News (a former in house publication of British Telecom), the Kennel Gazette (official journal of the British Kennel Club), Christian Herald, and Sports Magazine Bahamas.
Her writing assignments have included articles for Bahamas Information Services, travel writing for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and as a photo journalist for Town Centre Mall, Nassau, Bahamas. She once worked as a “temp” for the late Sir Etienne Dupuch, former Publisher/Editor of The Tribune, Nassau, transcribing his long, captivating editorials.
Fay’s short stories have been published in The Lady magazine, London, England, and The Broadkill Review, Delaware, U.S.A.; with poetry in the U.K. magazine Evergreen. Most of her short stories in “Sunbeams from the Heart – A Collection of Twelve Romantic Short Stories” were first published in The Lady or The Broadkill Review.
The author drew on her Scottish background and knowledge of The Bahamas when writing her Romantic Suspense novel “Love at Sunset”. And her mini-memoir “The Scottish Connection” tells of her journey back to Scotland with her mother and young sons to revisit their Scottish roots. Her writer’s guide “How to Be the Best Writer Ever” is an informal guide and source of inspiration for new and not so new writers worldwide.
