Angela Knight's first book was written in pencil and illustrated in crayon; she was nine years old at the time. At 15, she read The Wolf and The Dove, at least until her mother caught her at it. But it was too late - she'd already been bitten by the romance bug.
In 1996, Angela discovered the small press publisher Red Sage, and realized her dream of romance publication in the company's Secrets 2 anthology. After several of her novellas saw print in Secrets, Berkley editor Cindy Hwang discovered her work there and asked her to write for the company. Since then she's published four novels. One of them, The Forever Kiss, won Romantic Times Bookclub's Critics Choice award for Best Erotic Romance. Another, Master of the Moon, spent three weeks on the USA Today bestseller list.
Angela lives in South Carolina with her husband, a sheriff's deputy, and her son, an aspiring science fiction novelist.
