Hello, I’m Angela!
I’ve been a life-long reader and writer of stories and poems. My mum still has my first poem tucked away somewhere, entitled “Snow,” which I dictated to her when I was four years old.
My first serious venture into writing began with children’s Picture Books when I was a young stay-at-home mum. Some sixteen years later, (after many ups and downs, I’ve found myself drawn back to writing Children’s stories once again. I’m currently querying agents and publishers for representation. Some of the picture book stories I have written so far feature:
- A guitar playing goose;
- A squirrel who loses a treasure
- And a mail-tortoise called Hugo
I hope one day you’ll get to read them.
Kids, Kids, Kids!
When I’m not writing, I work as a Childminder, specialising in the Early Years (0-5) age-group. Spending lots of time with young children is an abundant source of inspiration!
Breaking Into Print
In 2015, I remained unpublished, and a little perplexed, about what God wanted me to do with my passion for writing. I began to wonder what would happen if I mixed my love for writing with my faith in Jesus Christ. So, I started blogging and began to search out opportunities to write for Christian publications.
A few months later, I received my first ever YES from a publisher when two of my short devotional stories, entitled ‘Pitch-Black Patch’ and ‘Hidden Blooms’ were published by Keys For Kids Ministries. in their quarterly devotional.
It was so much fun that I went on to write a few more, some of which include
- Teacups and Trainsets
- The Doll’s House
- That’s Not My Job
- Only God Can Do That
- and Don’t Forget the Toothpaste

I’ve also written faith-based articles and devotional pieces for Creation Illustrated, Devozine, Unlocked and the Devotable App.
I am deeply committed to using my passion for writing to communicate the Good News of Jesus to children and those young in the faith.
With this in mind, I am currently making plans to write my first faith-based Chapter Book for children aged 7-11.
I also enjoy developing bible-based material for teaching and study.
I’m really keen to connect with other readers, writers and creatives to share inspiration, writing-related content and encouragement!
When I’m not writing, chances are I’m either buried in a pile of laundry, curled up with a good book, pottering in the garden, or cooking up a storm in the kitchen, whilst listening to music.
I live in London with my husband Nathan, our four growing kids, two rescue tabby cats, Toby and Cleo, and a rather rambunctious Fox Red Labrador, Amber!
I hope you will stay tuned for news and updates.
Thank you so much for visiting!
