Equipped with a professional writing degree from Augusta State University, Angela Kay always had the imagination and passion of a writer. She has written many short stories in her lifetime, most of which won’t ever see the light of day!
During college, her playwright professor had urged her to submit her one-act play to a 2009 playwright contest. To her shock and glory, she was one of 23 across the United States to win for her one-act entitled “Digging Deeper.” Because of this, she was able to spend a week in Atlanta at the Horizon Theater Company.
She’d begun writing her first novel, The Murder of Manny Grimes in 2009 during a creative writing college course. The first draft was well-received by her peers and professor. After seven years of writing and re-writing, the final draft of Manny Grimes became so unrecognizable and so different from the direction she initially went. Finally, Angela published it in 2016 with ThomasMax Publishing. A year later, she followed it up with a second book, Blood Runs Cold. In March of 2018, she published an FBI Thriller, I Can Kill.
Angela draws her inspiration from international bestselling author, Steven James, as well as Agatha Christie and James Patterson.
Aside from writing, Angela enjoys watching TV and movies. Her favorite entertainers include James Stewart, Bing Crosby, Paul Newman, Mark Wahlberg, Bryan Adams, and Jeremy Camp.
Angela lives in Augusta, Georgia with her crazy calico, Maggie.
