It's Author's Coffee Time on my blog today! Come in, grab a coffee and cookie, and meet Alex Knight...

About Alex

I currently live in a small city outside of Toronto with my partner. Murder and horror has always fascinated me so I enjoy writing about them, throwing in humor whenever possible. I'm an avid reader so if I'm not writing, or doing laundry, I'm reading. These days I'm supporting my talented, fellow indie writers, having decided that the big names have enjoyed my hard earned dollars long enough.

Latte, cappuccino, regular? What’s your coffee time pleasure? 

Regular, double cream with one sweetener

What flavour cookie would you like with that?

White chocolate chunk with Macadamia nuts

What’s your greatest writing achievement to date? 

Having a respected peer tell me he loved my story.

Who is your hero and why?

My daughter K, she's bright, funny, compassionate and successful. In fact she's everything I want to be when I grow up, well except that she isn't a writer… yet.

Which word best defines your writing?

I'd love to say spellbinding, but that doesn't do it justice. Actually I think the most appropriate word would be easy. You don't need a university degree to read my work, in fact it would probably be a hindrance. I try to provide an entertaining story that is easily read. 

What’s the most recent thing that made you laugh?

My bank balance, whenever I need a good laugh I go online and look at it. It also makes getting up and going out to work in the morning tolerable.

Which book is on your coffee table right now?

Well I don't have a coffee table, but if I did there'd most likely be an Ikea catalogue on it. Come to think of it, if I had the catalogue I'd probably have a coffee table.

What was the name of your first pet?

I had a Border collie x German Shepherd named Roz - short for Roswell. It's a long story.

Who is your favourite character and why?

Wonder Woman. She has bullet deflecting bracelets, an invisible plane, a lasso that forces people to tell the truth, great boots and… wait a minute… boots, rope and a dull day job that she deliberately dresses down for… I'm thinking there just might be something else going on there.

What’s your most embarrassing moment?

Nothing comes to mind right now, so I guess it hasn't happened yet. I just hope when it does happen 1) I can live it down and 2) I don't see it on YouTube an hour later.

Alex, did you know I was actually Wonder Woman in my spare time?

Happy Lassoing!
