Anouska Knight

New Writers Collective 2023

Anouska Knight is a working class Midlander mother of three with an overactive imagination and fondness for human stories. Plucked from housewifery in 2013 by ITV Lorraine’s Racy Reads writing competition, she’s gone on to enjoy multiple book deals, spots on The Bookseller and Heatseekers bestsellers lists, and even a lunch date in Beverly Hills for pizza and writing advice from the late, great Jackie Collins OBE. Her novels have sold in over twenty territories worldwide, with translations along the way.

Rated one of the best writers in the Midlands by Birmingham TV & Film Market, Anouska’s currently working on her fifth novel for Harper Collins Publishers, and scripted projects centred on Midlander-based stories.
