Aya Knight was born in South Florida, where she spent the majority of her childhood. At a young age she developed a strong passion for fantasy and a love of writing. Through movies, books and video/computer games she would escape into an alternate reality filled with adventure, magic and epic quests.
"To this day, I still love a good book. I'm also a big sucker for gaming. I think that it allows us an escape to another place. Imagination is amazing."
As Aya entered adulthood, she expressed her enjoyment of writing through becoming a freelance journalist. She wrote about a broad variety of topics that gave her a brighter insight of the world. Eventually a story began to develop within her mind involving characters she immediately grew attached to. Aya knew that she needed to compile her thoughts onto paper. She grew so intrigued with the evolving storyline that she placed all hopes within the hands of her imagination, leaving journalism behind.
"I'll be the first to admit that I've taken a great amount of influence from other amazing authors. They're an inspiration. My novels however, come from within. I want to create a unique story that will sweep readers away - I'm following my heart, and needless to say, it's taken me on a crazy adventure."
Aya now lives in Central Florida with her husband and two sons where she continues her passion of writing.
"I have no intentions at this time to stop writing. I hope this is something that I can continue to do for a very long time."
