Angelica N. Sumter


Angelica N. Sumter is of Puerto Rican and African descent who was born on October 1, 1987 in Naples, Florida, but grew up in Immokalee, Florida alongside her two older siblings. She is a self-published author of paranormal thrillers, publishing her first novel entitled 360 in January of 2013, but was later renamed Banshee. She is also a work-from-home advocate, instructor, freelance writer, internet/affiliate marketer, and professional blogger. Prior to her work at home success, she encountered many obstacles in her life; residing in a diminutive town where job opportunities were scarce – it left her jobless, broke, and nearly homeless.

Surmounting the impediments bestowed upon her, she resorted to the virtual world in 2011 as a part-time independent contractor, but it wasn’t until 2013 that she started working from home full-time, changing her life completely. As her life commenced to ascend, so did her passion for helping others – just like her – on a trajectory towards success.

Consequently, she became the founder of the Virtual Employment Center, an online resource that helps individuals find full-time, part-time, temporary, or extra income at home as well as provide the necessary preparation (courses, training, books, etc.) for a successful work-at-home career. Angelica is also practicing internet entrepreneurship by operating an online jewelry and accessory store for women, A.N.S Jewels.

Angelica considers herself a life-long learner who has, thus far, earned a diploma in English language and literature at Alison. She is also in pursuit of a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative writing and English with a concentration in fiction and a minor in American studies at Southern New Hampshire University.

Smashwords Interview

Why did you choose this route?
It chose me. I always utilize the proverb "everything happens for a reason" and I am a firm believer in that. At the time I couldn't comprehend why I endured such trials and tribulations, but in retrospect, I now understand why it transpired. It had to take place in order to lead me to where I am today, a writer. Although I have a strong vehemence for writing, I probably wouldn't have became a writer because it was the furthest thing on my mind - I was actually indecisive about which career path was right for me. But today, I am thankful for my struggles because I would have never found myself.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Studying. I know most people would take advantage of their leisure time and have fun, but I am currently in college and most of my free time is invested into my studies. On the days that I'm not writing, working or studying, I will go shopping, have dinner, see a movie at the movie theater, beach or anything that relates to fun.
