Zenora Knight believes characters tell their own stories and her role as a novelist is to provide a platform for them to speak and share their lives. She is very passionate about writing and she is not afraid to allow her characters to have complete freedom of speech, giving her readers a front row seat.
Although Zenora was born in Newark, New Jersey, she was raised in Chase City, Virginia and Westchester County, New York. She is proud of her southern roots which she feels has influenced her life in a positive way.
She graduated from Virginia State University with a B.A. in Sociology. She lived in Georgia and Germany before returning to Westchester County, where she currently resides.
After 30 years of service as a Senior Caseworker for the Westchester County Department of Social Services and Westchester County Health Department, she feels it’s time to say goodbye (not retire) and transition to a new career as a writer. She proudly presents her first published novel, “The Curse of the Bailey Women” and is currently working on her second novel, “Dirty Hands.”
She welcomes communication from her readers.
