A Wattpad Featured author, Angela earned her BA in English from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2006. She lives in southern Wisconsin with her husband and young daughter, and is the oldest of four children.
Her novel, Devil’s Lake, began as an idea she had when she was 15. While on vacation at Lake Namakagon in northern Wisconsin, she imagined a young man standing out on a dock. He turned, smiled, and gestured for her to follow. And then she imagined following him into the woods where he eventually disappeared.
She attempted to write the story twice during her teen years, but her handwritten drafts were lost to time and accidents.
Nearly two decades later, and with only seven pages remaining of the original draft, she began writing the current version of Devil’s Lake. In 2014, she started syndicating the story on Wattpad. While her following remained small, her readers were dedicated, many sticking with the story for up to a year it took to finish the draft.
Once the draft was finished, Devil’s Lake rose in rank at a gradual but steady pace, continually breaking its record and reaching #17 without being featured. In March of 2016, Wattpad added the story to its Featured List and within that month it was in the top ten. In April, it reached #3.
She is currently preparing the story for a paperback release.
