Angela Minor

Biography

Angela began with a dream of being a journalist but moved more toward a business career, working in management and sales. But the dream of being a writer has never been far in the background of her life. A classic over-achiever, she spent eight years in college to complete two degrees in mass communication and sign language interpreting. While working various jobs to pay the bills, she shared her writing as a hobby through a weekly blog she did for a year, sharing her life experiences and which was published on multiple websites. When she ended the blog, she began more than a year of work to complete her first two manuscripts. Now she lives in the North Carolina mountains and spends most of her time taking care of "her kids".

Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I'm in the process of writing a new book called "Seeing is Believing". It's about a brother and sister, Nathan and Gracie Graddy. He is an FBI agent who is investigating a series of murders. She is in a psychiatric facility being treated for schizophrenia. When Gracie begins to "see" the murders that Nathan is investigating, he starts to believe that there is more than meets the eye to her hallucinations.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are in the urban fantasy genre. Laurell Hamilton, Jim Butcher, Thomas Sniegoski, Kim Harrison, Patricia Briggs, Nalini Singh, Faith Hunter, Karen Chance, and Eileen Wilks are my top picks. I like the whole good versus evil approach. And when the good guys are sometimes the ones that others would consider the monsters, even better.
