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.
Throughout fifteen short stories, Garden Boulevard explores the choices women face and the consequences of the ones they make.
From society weddings to strollers in the park, Angela Amman collects the stories strewn along a New York city block like so many discarded rose petals, considering the knife-edge of hope and anguish in a woman’s heart with compassion and an unflinching eye.
“Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.” ~ Pema Chodron
Angela Amman's debut collection of short fiction delves into the private shadows of three very distinct relationships. For these three women, there are lessons to embrace before they can release the turmoil which holds them back from hope.
