'Begin the journey, experience the magic...'



Reading and writing have played an important part throughout Angela's life and made her aware of the power of words. After gaining a degree in Literature and Creative Writing, Angela has written and illustrated exciting and magical adventure stories for children. Her debut trilogy, suitable for ages 9+, called The Amshir Legacy consists of Book 1 The Golden Moonbeam, Book 2 ​The Theft of the Black Diamond and Book 3 The Mists of the Silver Circle​. For ages 6-8 years, Angela has written about ​Moonshadow and the Baby Ice Dragon, involving a fairy who doesn't like the rules. Angela's fifth book is The Dragon of Avebury Henge, and tells the story of a friendship between a young boy and a dragon who wants to be a writer.

Angela's educational resources include a FREE Creative Writing Guide for children, called ​How to Turn a Genie into a Genius in One Move! ​ and also a FREE recipe/instruction sheet on how to make DRAGON FOOD -  this is something unique that Angela has created for the dragons in her books, and they love it! Both of these FREE resources are in PDF format and can only be downloaded from her website


Angela has been in the writing profession for over twelve years. She has opened a new school library, been interviewed on radio, written published articles for Montessori International Magazine, The Western Daily Press, West Country Life, Mums the Word (Swindon) and numerous parenting websites.
