More about Deidre Knight:
Deidre Knight is a literary agent, mom, wife, novelist and southern woman, and proud to answer to all of these titles. Before she founded The Knight Agency in 1996, Deidre worked behind the camera in movies and television. During the ten years since she launched her literary agency, she has grown The Knight Agency to national prominence, shepherding authors on to every major bestseller list. With agency sales of more than 600 titles, a large percentage of which are in the categories of romance and women’s fiction, Deidre has established a reputation for discovering vivid and unique storytellers and is considered an industry expert on the hot trend of paranormal fiction. Writing in that genre, she creates fresh characters and strong, emotional storylines. One editor has described her as having “tremendous verve and a great knack for character and smart scenes.” Others have called her writing “outstanding” and “emotionally evocative.”

Deidre began her writing career at age nine, when her award-winning essay on Barbie was published in her hometown newspaper, The Atlanta Journal and Constitution. She has been writing in one form or another ever since. After nearly a decade of working with Knight Agency clients, helping them discover their creative potential, Deidre will celebrate her own fiction debut in April 2006. To be published by NAL, Parallel Attraction is the first in her innovative “the future meets the present” paranormal series. Her fiction launch marks the fulfillment of Deidre ’s lifelong writing dream, and she is excited to embark on yet another new and fulfilling creative journey.


“A fantastic and riveting new voice in paranormal fiction.”
-Karen Marie Moning, New York Times bestselling author of Spell of the Highlander

In the unforgettable, alternate world of The Parallel Series, two enemies are bound by betrayal, vengeance—and forbidden passion.

In the far reaches of Wyoming , the war between human and alien soldiers threatens to destroy the world. Alien warrior and royal guardian Marco McKinley takes his assignment as personal protector to beautiful soldier Thea Haven seriously. But in a time-bending twist of fate, the woman he loves is torn from his side as he is transformed into a vicious enemy of his own people.

“Intelligent characters, hot romance and breathtaking adventure with epic feel—exactly what I want to read!”
- Susan Grant, New York Times bestselling author
