K.T. BISHOP - Romance-wiki

Good morning:
            If I appeared on wikipedia, here's what it would look like:


                    K.T. Bishop (born October 18, 1969) is a Electronic Book author of Sports Romance novels. He's known for his four best-sellers: A Taste of Italy, Cajun Blues, Classified Love and End of the Rainbow.

Early Life

                Bishop was born on October 18, 1969 at Druid City Hospital in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. He graduated from Cottondale Elementary in 1982, Holt High School in 1988 and Stillman College in 1992.

                During Bishop's last two years at Holt High, he developed a passion for writing. He served as Sports Editor of the Purple Reign, the school's newspaper from 1986 to 1988. It was this experience under Gail Cates that inspired to pursue a successful sports writing career.

                At Stillman College, Bishop's writing blossomed under the tutelage of Professor Stephen Flanigan Jackson. He was Sports Editor of the Tigers' Paw from 1989 to 1991 and Editor-in-chief in 1991 until his graduation the following spring. He graduated with honors from high school and college with a B.S. in Journalism.

                Three experiences during this span served as the turning point in Bishop's life.

                In 1990, Bishop attended a pre-medical institute at Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. He had no aspiration to enter the medical field, but the six-week period later became the inspiration for his acclaimed College Love 101 series at Red Rose Publishing: How to Cure a Cajun Cold, Catching a Cuban Curveball and Back in Love Again.

Author Career

              A decade into his journalism career, Bishop became an author. His first E-book, How to Cure A Cajun Cold, was released at Red Rose Publishing in 2008. A year later, Picking Cotton was released.

                A Taste of Italy was Bishop's breakthrough hit in 2014, spending six weeks at number one on www.Allromanceebooks.com.

                Cajun Blues peaked at the third position at ARE.

                Classified Love, formerly released at Rebel Ink Press, reached the seventh spot at ARE in 2012.

                End of the Rainbow, reached 10th at ARE in 2014.

                Four other E-books cracked the Top 40 at ARE: A Christmas Reunion (13th), A Cajun Christmas (15th), A Cajun Halloween (16th) and Curling Up (23rd).

                Since 2008,  Bishop has written 48 books and 28 have been published. Nineteen are published at Red Rose.

Joanne, for some strange reason, the Biology professors at Stillman loved my potential. I was only trying to get a good grade and make Dean's List.

Sandy, I had 28 E-books published. One-third of that total came from Rebel Ink Press and we're re-releasing those.
