Botanical Garden Inspires Angel Knight to Write Poetic Love Story
When Angel Knight was a child, Oprah Winfrey’s father, Vernon Winfrey, owned a store and barber shop in her neighborhood. When Vernon told her stories about walking miles to school, sitting two students to one desk, and the importance of business ownership, Angel listened intently.
“I listened to him because I imagined him telling Oprah the same things,” Angel says. “His words were a major influence in my life. I always believed having my own business was something I could do.”
Therefore it was no surprise that Angel grew up to become a broker and owner of her own real estate firm, Diamond Realty Brokers, which specializes in affordable luxury homes. Her clients have included the producers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta and she has sold homes for Tyler Perry’s cadre of actors.
In addition, Angel is a newly published author. She is pursuing her dream of being an author and publisher. This summer, she started her own publishing company, Inspire Me Publishings, LLC. Look for Angel’s book, Love Letters in the Gardens, a poetic love story she wrote, inspired by the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. In the future, she hopes to publish more of her own books and possibly other authors who have positive, inspirational material. This year, she also hopes to sell Love Letters in the Gardens in the Atlanta Botanical Garden gift shop.
Angel is also inspired by music and is a vocalist who has been singing since she was a young child. “Writing and singing for me has always been enlightening and inspiring,” she notes. “It’s my way of thanking people like my mother who raised me on her own as well as other influential people in my life. I just want them to know that their stories will not go unheard or unsung. Whether I’m singing or writing about love or legacy, it will be inspiring!”
