A. M. Harding


Angell M. Harding is a caffeine addict from Brisbane, Australia. Her natural habitat is perched over her tablet in the nearest coffee shop or tea house, gazing into space in between furious bursts of typing.

A voracious devourer of stories, Angell enjoys books, movies, and television series of all types except romance. When she's not writing, she pours her creative energies into drawing, painting, and sculpting.

Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
Most of my favourites are series, rather than individual novels.

I particularly love the Necroscope series by Brian Lumley, for it's unrelenting horror and gore. I read these back in highschool & they still fascinate me. At the other end of the scale, I adore Terry Pratchett's Discworld, though I'm especially fond of The Last Continent, but I might be biased by all the references to Australia. I'm still partway through a Song of Ice and Fire, but it has burned a place in my heart, despite the sheer complexity - I need to write notes to myself just to keep track of all of the goings-on.

Individually, The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night Time and The Truth Machine were both hugely important novels for me.
What do you read for pleasure?
I actually read surprisingly little for pleasure. I'm on the lazy side & I tend to spend an afternoon watching three movies rather than read part of a novel. I guess I was influenced by my parents' taste, when I was young and looking for books to read, I found Stephen King novels on their bookshelf, & I've always been really interested in thrillers and horror/thrillers.
