Joe McKnight was born in a small Alberta farming community. He started his schooling in Ardrossan where he developed a love of story telling. His love of writing continued to grow throughout his school years. In 2004, while upgrading his English 30, Joe’s passion increased. It was during that same year he stumbled upon a writer’s circle (offered by the Writers Foundation of Strathcona County) that provided the support and encouragement he needed. He continues to grow in his writing and looks forward to many future literary ventures.
Joe has published several books: Time's Hostage, Fly on the Wall, The Arrival, Powerless and The Other Secret. He is currently working on a new manuscript.
Joe is also an accomplished artist and his artwork also appears on the cover of From a Solitary Drop - he was commissioned to design the illustration featured on the cover.
