About Angela

Born and raised in Australia’s capital city Canberra, Angela developed an early love for storytelling that was nurtured by the works of Australian literary icons like Ruth Park, Paul Jennings, and John Marsden, alongside international favourites Roald Dahl, Beverly Cleary, and Judy Blume. These diverse authors helped shape Angela's unique narrative voice and storytelling approach.

Angela's writing journey started as a child, when she developed a deep passion for reading which encouraged a burning desire to create. Before the era of readily available computers, Angela pleaded for her very own typewriter, marking the beginning of a lifelong adventure in crafting tales.

The "Capital Adventure" series is made up of three beautifully illustrated picture books set in Angela’s hometown of Canberra. Known affectionately as the Bush Capital, Canberra is filled with native Australian wildlife and exciting places to explore. Inspired by the centennial celebration of Canberra in 2013, Angela found her talented illustrator – Ian Coate and published a poem about a curious wombat who unwittingly explores Parliament House. This book laid the foundation for a series that captures the fun of encounters with inquisitive creatures.

Angela is a versatile writer, unbound by a specific style. Her "Find Your Own Way" series, an enjoyable exploration into choose-your-own-adventure narratives, reflects her enthusiasm for experimentation. The "Minky Robinson" series, on the other hand, is a manifestation of her fascination with intertwining fiction (time travel) and fact (family history), weaving tales that transport readers across historical landscapes.

With ten published books to date, Angela is a prolific creator with an array of projects in the works, each a testament to a passion for storytelling for children. Among the projects in the works, Angela would love to delve into the world of mystery writing—a genre that would add another layer to her literary repertoire.

Beyond the pages, Angela shares a love of reading with her daughter. They are avid patrons of their local library, a space where countless adventures unfold within the pages of borrowed books. Angela has proudly but unwittingly passed on the torch of literary curiosity, having read countless stories together.
