Author: CZ Knight-McManus

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Southern New Hampshire University earning a BA in English with a concentration in Creative Nonfiction Writing. I minored in Legal Studies. The pursuit of an MFA in Creative Writing begins during the summer of 2019. My non-fiction work addresses the corrupt U.S. criminal justice system, daily life in prison and the struggles long-term ex-cons encounter after decades of incarceration. Being an ex-con who served two decades of incarceration within the Texas DOC (TDCJ), I write with a voice of unquestioned authority. When taking a break from nonfiction work, I write Southern and Urban Gothic short stories, and from time to time, Steampunk and Dieselpunk fiction.
