Let's get up close and personal with Author Eliza Knight!

Eliza Knight is the multi-published author of sizzling historical romance and erotic romance. While not reading, writing or researching for her latest book, she chases after her three children. In her spare time (if there is such a thing…) she likes daydreaming, wine-tasting, traveling, hiking, staring at the stars, watching movies, shopping and visiting with family and friends. She lives atop a small mountain, and enjoys cold winter nights when she can curl up in front of a roaring fire with her own knight in shining armor.

Once upon a time, in a land far away, there lived a princess…

Growing up, I was a proficient story teller, with most of my plots encompassing princesses and princes and dreams coming true. Now as an author, some of my stories are still about royalty, knights, duels, ladies, intruique, betrayal. History fascinates me and I try to bring history back to life in each of my stories.

My favorite time periods are medieval, renaissance and Regency eras of Europe. Growing up, I was lucky to have grandparents who lived in Paris, so many a summer was spent exploring medieval ruins and historical sites.

One of my all time favorite books is Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Bronte, and I am of course Jane Austen fan, my two favorites being Pride and Prejudice and Sense and Sensibility. I love the in-depth, emotionally riveting and intriguing works of historical author, Ken Follett. I am also a fan of Shakespeare, and you will find in a lot of my writing reference to the literary God and his work. Not only Shakespeare, but other period poets and literary notables of history are on my keeper shelf. My love affair with the romane genre started young. I picked up my first romance novel, The Bride, by Julie Garwood when I was in high school, and I haven't been able to stop reading or writing romance since.

When I'm not reading or writing I am usually doing research for fun. If you love history, come visit me at
History Undressed, where we discuss all the wildly fascinating and titillating facts of history! Recently I've started to post reviews of historical fiction and romance novels as well.

Hi Eliza. You are lucky to have had such a great opportunity as a child. I would love to explore medieval ruins. I also love your website.

Ooooh, your story sounds fabulous, Eliza! I'm a bit of a Euro tale writer myself. Visited Paris, London, Amsterdam, etc when younger. Fell in love with all of the history offered.

Much agreed about Sense & Sensibility. Have read it so many times the pages are worn thin!

Thank you Anita! I hope to someday take my kids there too. It was really a great experience, and I'm glad I remember it!

Thanks Sky :) London is on my list! I would love to take a two week trip to England/Scotland. I think that would be awesome! I recently travelled to Ireland and it was beautiful!
