I always wanted to be a writer. I love to tell stories and to creative magical worlds.
2. What is the best part about being an author for you?
The freedom of being my own boss, creating and doing as I please.
3. Do you have any funny or unique writing quirks?
I like to visit busy cafes or crowded bookshops to write. I love doing that because I find that being surrounded by people even though I don't interact with them is very helpful because being a writer can be a very,lonely job. I like noise and distraction and often listen to music while writing, such as a favorite movie soundtrack or Celtic mood music.
4. How long did it take you to write Amarok?
I wrote Amarok in less than a month.
5. Describe Amarok in 5 words or less, please!
Ice age lore, love, freedom.
6.Is there anything else you'd like to tell your readers?
I am agented by the fantastic Jill Corcoran of the Herman Agency. Jill never let me give up. Not once. I owe her a lot for her encouragement. If you are a struggling author--never, ever give up.
Angie has graciously offered a copy of her favourite childhood book, Wuthering Heights!
