William Knight Author

William Knight is a British born journalist and technologist currently living and working in Wellington, New Zealand.

In 2003 he published his first feature in Computing magazine and has since written about the many successes and failings of high-tech for the Guardian, Financial Times and the BBC among many others publications. He continues to work in a lively IT consultancy.

His debut novel, Generation aka The Donated, was first conceived from a New Scientist article in 2001 and was ten years in development. It is now available as an ebook and print-on-demand since the author believes that traditional publishing has become the play-thing of celebrity authors and ghost writers, and is moribund with tired ideas and quill pens.

“Paper and thrillers have parted company. The future of this exciting genre belongs on a new format and in a direct connection between author and reader.”
