Not all authors could balance their writing with four jobs and a thirst for lifelong learning, but Angela Anderson does just that. Type A (for awesome), creative and emotional, she has a non-traditional, multifaceted career that includes planning and designing events, teaching, marketing, and seeing the world from behind a video camera lens.
With a reputation for being “the quirky one”, she has a collection of skull memorabilia and a love for motorcycles, cupcakes, hip hop music and all things pretty.
Passionate about youth, the former high school teacher now volunteers as a Big Sister and spent past summers helping underprivileged children at a non-profit summer camp.
Angela was also the 2007 Canadian Adult National Champion in figure skating and currently teaches children as young as two years old how to find joy on the ice.
According to elementary school report cards, she was a child with an "active imagination" and had very strong creative writing skills, often amusing both classmates and teachers with elaborate stories. High school brought out the dreamy, thoughtful poet which led to being recognized by the community and awarded a creative writing scholarship. Now, with a B.A. (honors, English/Music), B.Ed. and a whole lot of worldly experience, her writing emphasizes wit and light action geared towards keeping youth interested in literature and most importantly, turning pages.
