 Author B. Knox 


Tell us about yourself.
    Author B. Knox resides in Mooresville, North Carolina and her love for reading is what inspired her to pursue a writing career. She published her first book, He Gives Me a Feeling Like No Other, on April 27th, 2020. Besides writing, B. Knox works in healthcare as a Certified Medical Assistant. B. Knox enjoys being a mother to her two young men who is her whole heart in human form. When she’s not writing, she’s enjoying her free time with family, friends, and reading.

At what point do you think someone should call themselves a writer?
     I think anyone that spends their days writing books, novellas, short stories, and even someone that writes in a journal can call themselves a writer.

What part of the book was the most fun to write?
    The fun part of writing a book for me is coming up with the characters and their personalities.

Are there any books or authors that inspired you to become a writer?
   Authors like Zane, Sister Souljah, Wahida Clark and Terri Woods are some of the many authors that aspired me to become a writer. I’ve been reading their books since I was in middle school.

What advice would you give to help others create plotlines?
    I write off the top of my head. I’ve never really created plot lines, the most I do is write down important dates and events.

Do you play music while you write — and, if so, what’s your favorite?
    I like to listen to Erykah Badu, Summer Walker, HER, and Cardi B depending on what I’m writing about at the moment.

If you could spend a day with another popular author, whom would you choose, and why?
    This is a hard question because I have a lot of favorite authors, but if I had to choose I think it would be Sister Souljah. She seems like she’s really down to earth. I fell in love with her after reading the Coldest Winter Ever. This was one of the best urban fiction book I had read in my life. I would love to pick her brain on how she came up with this storyline.

How do you use social media as an author? 
     I use my social media sites to connect with readers and promote my work.

What would you like to say to your readers? 
    To my readers, I would like to thank them for supporting me through my
writing journey. I really appreciate each and everyone of you guys.
