About Angelique LaFontaine

My name is Angelique LaFontaine. I was born in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin and live in the country about an hour outside of Dallas, TX. I am employed as a Mechanical Engineer but spend much of my time painting and writing I have been building my work collection for the last 15 years and it includes paintings, sketches, poetry compilations, novels, digital short stories and much more.

I do not limit my writing to one specific genre but I tend to lean more toward fiction fantasy. I love the idea of not having boundaries when writing. If you can think it, in my story, it could happen. In 2008, I released my first poetry compilation. This collection was entitled Walking Before You Run. It is a collection of 75 poems that I've written over the years. In 2010 I released Sandstone and Mirrors: The Crossover. I have many more books and short stories that I am preparing to release.

Besides writing, I love to paint and sketch. I enjoy working with acrylic mainly but from time to time, work with other mediums. Currently my work is being displayed in the Little Elm Library in Little Elm TX. It has been rotated throughout different locations in the Dallas area. Please see my website at for any updates.

Review by: Bruce Benson on Aug. 01, 2012 :
It seems like the author is speaking from the heart on this story, no doubt a likeness of something that can and has happened in many families through out the world. It's heart breaking and sad. But I still encourage the readers to look at this story with open eyes and if nothing else, use it as a reminder to be grateful if you do not have to contend with such turmoil

This is a unique story. Divorces are common but the aftermath of this one is unusual. The story will take you on a ride that will dominate your attention.

Review by: Paul Pace on July 20, 2012 :
Another painful read from this author. Once again, I found myself having to read several sentences and full paragraphs multiple times to try to find out what the author was trying to say. Although, the main character in this book has a name (Melanie) this just seems like a short story spin off from another one of her books. This time the author goes into a detailed account of one event where she continues to bash and blame her ex-husband for a video of her. The author does not give the character, of the ex-husband, a name in this book so it leaves room for interpretation. The story left me asking more questions (in a negative, non-suspenseful way) and provided very few answers.

What a bad day this poor girl had, it makes my worst day look good. Too bad Karma didn't step in at the end and give a dose to Melanie's ex.
This story will keep you reading, just to find out what happens next.
