More About the Author

I'm Angie Dixon. I'd like to tell you a bit about who I am and what I do.

First, I hate talking about myself in the third person, so I'm not going to.

I have known I was a writer since I was five years old. I took all the paper off the shelf.

My teacher told me to put it all back except one piece.

My best friend Mark stood up and said, "She's going to write a book." As only a kindergarten teacher can Mrs. Carnahan said, "Well, then, she'll have to write it one piece of paper at a time."

So I did. I've written more than 35 books, most of which are no longer available.

Here's what I write now:

Creativity: I've now written three editions of The Leonardo Trait, my book on life as a profoundly creative person Juggling multiple projects and ideas while trying - and failing - to fit into the world the way other people seem to.

Career Search: I first wrote the career search Guide Your Heart's Work in 2009 as a gift for my best friend. I've recently split that book into topics for several focused guides, now published as the Your Heart's Work Series.

Personal Growth: I've been writing about personal development and self-help for nearly 20 years. I've recently updated some of my older work and started writing new books in a series called Your Best Life.

Children's Picture Books: I love to write, and I've recently started a series of kids' picture books, called the Kids Discover Series, which I write under the name A. D. Dixon.

Whichever of my books grabs your interest, I hope you'll enjoy reading my work.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you like to read a smattering of someone's life, this could work for you. The title is catchy, but the body doesn't support it. Perhaps a good read for a fourth grader, but I know my fifth grader, who was awarded most accelerated reader in her class last year, would find it boring. For two hours of reading, the price was indecent. I bought my daughter War & Peace a few months ago, in hard-back, and didn't pay this much.
