About Lucey Knight

Lucey Knight is a Texas native with a charming wit and shining personality. Writing is truly her passion. She loves to write poetry, short stories, articles and she is currently working on her second book. When asked how she got her start in writing, Lucey had this to say: “As a young child I was very imaginative and quite a talker. Around age 8, I was given the nickname of “Lucey” by my Grandfather. He always said I reminded him of the Peanuts character, Lucy who gave advice. Throughout my early years in school I took creative writing classes and submitted my work to contests. Over the years as an adult, I became a mother of four and had little time available for my writing. Today, at 45 my children are grown and I now work for a company that affords me the time to follow my true passion. And now continues a journey I started long ago in an attempt to sharpen my skills and expand my creativity and hopefully will lead to much success.”
