Who is Dayana Knight?
I am a writer of dark fantasy and erotic paranormal romance. I grew up with the written word and with the desire to write. At eleven years old I penned a romance novel in a spiral bound notebook complete with cover art I drew myself. I took journalism and creative writing in both grammar school and high school. I can't remember a time I haven't written in some capacity.
I have always thrived on the supernatural and the paranormal. My favorite things to do were things like touring old buildings, ancient cemetaries, deserted houses, and eerie mist-laden woods in the night. I grew up near New Jersey's Pine Barrens and thrived on legends of the Jersey Devil also known as the 13th Son. I loved going out for rides deep into the woods at night and just sit in the car with my adrenalin rushing and just this side of fearful panic *grin* We even used to venture out to an old abandoned insane asylum located just outside NE Philadelphia. Ask Jaclyn Tracy about this. She knows of the place too, LOL I personally loved the Blair Witch Experiment. Right up my alley of things to do, *grin*
I grew up with family stories of haunted houses and weird things that go bump in the night. I absorbed anything to do with vamps, weres, witches, Paganism, Wicca, etc. My favorite shows were Gene London and Quiggly Mansion(does anyone remember that?), Twilight Zone, Dark Shadows, Night Gallery, Dracula Movies, American Gothic, Twin Peaks, Wolf Lake, Blood and Chocolate. Basically, anything with a paranormal format. I read early Victoria Holt Gothics, Anne Rice books, Laurell K. Hamilton, JR Ward, and many others I've forgotten over the years.
And finally, I am a Black Rose and a Scarlet author for TWRP. I am excited to be a part of TWRP and love being a part of the Black Rose line.
