Introducing...Rhonda McKnight, Part III

I’m back with more to say about me. Here's a little known fact. Today's my birthday! Tonight when I'm about to endulge in some really decadent chocolate cake I'll be blowing out 39... 40...41...hmmmm 39 candles. So now you also know I'm a little vain.
I’m a new author, or should I say an author in waiting. My debut novel, Secrets and Lies will be released on December 1, 2009. Secrets and Lies is the story of a couple whose marriage is collapsing under the weight of – well, secrets and lies. My publisher is Urban Christian Books/Kensington Publishers. I’m excited. It’s been a goal of mine to become a published author for more than ten years. I haven’t started promoting my novel, because it's a wee bit early for that, but in 5 months I’ll be all over the early promotion thing. You’ll learn lots about Secrets and Lies. I really believe it's a great book and not because I wrote it, but because God truly inspired me. The themes in the novel will make for some very interesting discussions.

I do have one one early promo item coming up. On February 26th, as a part of a Valentine’s month feature on Written Voices Blog, I’ll share a short story about one of my characters. This is my first attempt at writing a short story since my highschool creative writing class. Written Voices is permitting me to share a short that will introduce Jonah and Faith Morgan. You’ll get to know one or both of them before their marriage. Then in June I’ll launch the Secrets and Lies Blog where I’ll chronicle more about the characters and story. Should be interesting.

Well that’s it about me for now. I’ll make sure to post a link to Written Voices. Also check me out at where I write a monthly column.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for wanting to know more about me. Please continue to send me your emails sharing what you want to see on UCFT. This is for you.
