Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I have been writing since I could hold a pencil. I have been "a writer" since about 1986, starting with angsty poetry. I have been a fiction writer since 2009.
What's the story behind your latest book?
Royal Regard began as a experiment, just to see whether I could write historical romance without embarrassing myself. (As it turns out, I can.) Once I met the villain, though, I was completely hooked, not just on the book, but also on the Regency romance genre. More coming soon.

Smashwords book reviews by Whaley Publishing

  • Candle's Christmas Chair on Dec. 20, 2014

    This was such a great novella! In the tradition of sweet Regency romance, Knight introduces a strong and opinionated heroine, a gentle but determined hero, and a relationship that is all the stronger for the struggle to attain the happy ending. Without obvious and blatant sexuality, and without forcing a situational resolution, the reader can believe in the interconnection of two less-than-perfect souls thwarted by circumstance. As a spin-off novella to a book as yet unpublished, Candle's Christmas Chair gives me a strong impetus to put this author, and all her future novels, on my permanent TBR list.
