Kristine Angela


Kristine Angela is an author, actress, and voice-over artist originally from Chicago, IL, currently residing in Los Angeles, CA. She is excited to share her first book with children of all ages who have ever felt lost, alone, or unwanted. As a young girl, Kristine loved to read and write. She created her first poem titled, “Reading is my Life” at the young age of six years old.

"Cuppy the Special Cupcake is a sweet, fun, and easy-to-read children's story with an important message. Young children will surely enjoy hearing Kristine Angela's unique retelling of the classic "Ugly Duckling" fairy tale." - NY Literary Magazine

Her inspiration for Cuppy came from hours upon hours of reading everything in her local library as a child, from The Berenstain Bears, Amelia Bedelia, The Magic School Bus, Arthur, Where the Sidewalk Ends, to every Dr. Seuss book she could get her hands on. The beauty of Cuppy is that he doesn’t realize just how perfect he really is in an imperfect world.

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love traveling, hiking and going to the beach!
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first book I ever read was Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham. It was soon after that, I wrote a poem entitled, Reading is my life that also rhymed. I wrote it when I was 6 years old.
