Mr. Knight graduated from the Naval Academy, but a serious car accident terminated his nascent aviation career. Thereupon, he returned to the Washington area and took a position on Capitol Hill, while completing a graduate degree at night. He served twenty years as a lobbyist and government relations professional for three trade associations and for three Federal agencies, while helping to raise two daughters and serving three terms on his local city council, where he was elected vice mayor by his colleagues. He worked for eight years as a support contractor to the U.S. Department of Energy, converting technical reports, detailing new technologies to clean up our nuclear waste legacy into English for departmental policy makers. About 15 governmental reports and studies bear his name. He now tutors English and writing to aspiring high school students and is an adjunct professor at a community college, while he continues his book writing. He is a member of the Washington Independent Writers group. He published How to Treat a Woman, a non-profit book for professional men to advise them on how to successfully establish meaningful relationships with women of the modern era, wrote an historical novel (Forgotten Brothers) about the two brothers of who captained the Nina and the Pinta, and is writing a history book, Virginia’s Finest, about the ten best U.S. Senators from Virginia.
