Knight, Jude

My goal is to give you stories to transport you to another time, another place, where you can enjoy adventure and romance, thrill to trials and challenges, uncover secrets and solve mysteries, and delight in a happy ending.

I’ve been telling stories all my life: making up serial tales to amuse my friends and children, imagining sequels to books that have moved me and left me wanting more, occasionally submitting short stories to magazines and the radio, starting more than a dozen novels set in different times and places.
