About Angela White

Who is Angela White?
I published my first book in elementary school--Mystery of the Missing Tabby. The school library still has it, as far as I know. That was my first real work, where writing became solace for me.
In Jr. High, a teacher told our class none of us could match the classic authors we would be studying; we weren’t good enough. I took that to heart and turned in an A- paper with a rookie mistake that prevented me from getting the respect I wanted from that lady. I hated it that she was right. I still do.
I also adore her for waking my brain to the possibility that someday I might be as good as one of the iconic writers who frame the world of literature. I’ll never know if she did it intentionally, but it worked for me. I’ve never wanted to do anything else.
Thanks to that drive, the fire she finished waking, I live off my writing and run my own publishing company. I have twenty novels out, and thousands of fans. It's a long way to go before children study my work in schools, but I’m still just as hot for it now as I was in that musty classroom in 7th grade.

So, that’s who I am. I am building, and living, the American dream.
Who are you and what have you done?

That’s a hard question to answer if you’re still trying to get there. I understand. Here’s some free advice: Follow your dreams, even when the world says it’s crazy. Sometimes, you’ll find a life that satisfies you more than you ever thought was possible. Chase that, starting right now, and the next time someone asks who you are, tell them you’re an immovable force, a wild dreamer, a hopeful comet shooting toward the goals that orbit your existence. And then lift your chin. There aren’t many of us left who want to be good at what we do. Everyone else just seems to want that green shit.

I now write full time and live on a small ranch with my family and our clowder of barn cats. You haven’t laughed until you’ve seen newborn kittens playing in the weeds. It’s an amazing way to begin the day. Thank you to everyone who gave me a try. I wouldn’t have this life if not for all of you. Self-sufficiency is an indescribable gift, especially when you grow up poor. May someone help each of you the way you’ve helped me.

Reviews of Bone Dust and Beginnings by Angela White

Lee Willard reviewed on March 2, 2021

This novel is a prime example of the perils of near-future sci-fi. The premise is a nuclear war in 2012, the story itself is set in 2016 (When a much greater disaster happened) so now it is in the 'Alternate History' sub-genre. It's another post-apocalyptic tale, or should I say bloodbath. It is quite violent, but not as violent as it claims.

Some concepts examined are a race of descendants of Jesus with supernatural powers, many of whom were experimented on in government bunkers before the war. The main character is one. That Mother Nature (Gaia) is attempting to wipe out humans (Corona Virus is more effective than monsters at that) and that super-macho males will follow unquestioningly a female with supernatural powers.

There is actually a little bit of sex in this story but nothing explicit that might educate any youths. The prose is good, as good as most professionals. Sorry about the lack of star ratings but this novel, though well-done, is, like most, too violent for me to give it an objective rating.

Excellent reading.

Ties into (after?) her Life After War series (also apocalyptic).

Reading the Life After War series will shed a little more light on this story since this one seems to start right in the middle.

A good read even without reading any of the previous series. However, now that I have read the Life After War: Books 1-3, I recommend reading that series first, it will definitely make this one easier to understand.

Also, after reading this one, I think it should be the first in the Alexa's Travels series. Alexa's Travels: A Prelude should be second or third.

The first two books of both series are currently free at Smashwords.
