Riley Knox is a born and raised native of “New Yawk,” although she jumped the border to play in the Garden State to follow the heart she places in everything she writes. She began her writing career by spinning fiction out of thin air—ask her mom about that time when she was five—and continued the habit into her adult life when hormones kicked in, and those stories became substantially hotter. Her introduction into the world of sleepless nights spent with hot men not her husband came on a nudge from a friend, and the website contest that started it all. Many cups of coffee and clicks of the mouse later, she enjoys having audible conversations on her drive to her day job with the many characters clamoring for attention if her head. Fortunately, her love of storytelling and wordy manipulation has manifested itself on paper, and not in institutionalization, or a criminal record. Her cats would miss her.
