Angela Amman


Angela is a freelance writer of both fiction and non-fiction. She also reviews life one book at a time on Tread Softly, her personal book review blog, where she melds together a love of reading, writing, and the lovely miscellany making up her world. As a managing editor at Write on Edge, she writes about the craft and practice of writing and works to build and nurture a supportive creative writing community.

When not reading, writing or wrangling her two preschoolers, Angela runs and wears too much lip gloss — generally not at the same time. Angela and her husband Ryan grew up in southeastern Michigan and currently live in metro Detroit with their children Abbey and Dylan.

Smashwords book reviews by Angela Amman

    This short story is the perfect read for fans of romance and/or period fiction. Cameron D. Garriepy does a wonderful job of transporting her readers back to 1953, when family expectations weighed heavily on family dinners and the promises between young men and women were made with heartfelt conversations and small touches. Her characters are captivating, and the story she builds around two brothers and the woman who may come between them is developed with perfect pacing. I highly recommend this story and can't imagine you will regret spending your afternoon falling in love with Thornton, Vermont.
