About Jude Knight

Have you ever wanted something so much you were afraid to even try? That was Jude ten years ago.

For as long as she can remember, she's wanted to be a novelist. She even started dozens of stories, over the years.

But life kept getting in the way. A seriously ill child who required years of therapy; a rising mortgage that led to a full-time job; six children, her own chronic illness… the writing took a back seat.

As the years passed, the fear grew. If she didn't put her stories out there in the market, she wouldn't risk making a fool of herself. She could keep the dream alive if she never put it to the test.

Then her mother died. That great lady had waited her whole life to read a novel of Jude's, and now it would never happen.

So Jude faced her fear and changed it--told everyone she knew she was writing a novel. Now she'd make a fool of herself for certain if she didn't finish.

Her first book came out to excellent reviews in December 2014, and the rest is history. Many books, lots of positive reviews, and a few awards later, she feels foolish for not starting earlier.

Jude write historical fiction with a large helping of romance, a splash of Regency, and a twist of suspense. She then tries to figure out how to slot the story into a genre category. She’s mad keen on history, enjoys what happens to people in the crucible of a passionate relationship, and loves to use a good mystery and some real danger as mechanisms to torture her characters.

Dip your toe into her world with one of her lunch-time reads collections or a novella, or dive into a novel. And let her know what you think.

Reviews of Unkept Promises by Jude Knight

Rue Allyn reviewed on Sep. 27, 2019

The golden pen of Jude Knight, author of the Golden Redepennings Series has penned a golden prize for readers. Begun with an unusual premise (seven years between the wedding and the wedding night), Unkept Promises is rich in historical detail and heavy (as real gold is) with suspense. Ms. Knight’s story shines bright with emotion and the true luster of love. If you have read her previous Redepenning books, you’ll know that Ms. Knight makes no promises she does not keep. If you have not experienced her other Redepenning stories (and there are many), Unkept Promises is an excellent place to start. 5 stars.
