About Angela K. Durden
Angela K. Durden is an author in multiple genres: Crime and General Fiction (pen name Durden Kell). Children's. Business. Memoir. And Humor. She is a book publisher with three imprints: WRITER for HIRE! Press; Second Bight Publishing; and Blue Room Books.
She has one crime series and one general fiction series in the works. She is also a Citizen Journalist and was the 2019 President of Sisters in Crime Atlanta Chapter. Angela is a songwriter and performer and producer of live shows.
Besides being a subject matter expert — as an Autodidact Polymath Magnificently Methodical Southern Woman and The Most Brilliant Woman in the World would be — she has been accused of being a comedienne. She says, "Don't blame me. I was born that way."
As a songwriter, Durden writes songs that tell stories. She calls them novels in miniature, or "audio books", if you will.
She conducts fun creative writing workshops and series of workshops for third through fifth grades. She loves to write and enjoys the power of words and punctuation properly used. As she tells students, "Punctuation is power. Don't aggravate a reader by misusing your power."
Durden speaks and teaches on the subjects of book publishing, editing, agents, writing, and the music business.
Angela K. Durden hates anyone who disrespects words and makes the following request: "Dear Person Who Uses Words, if you insist on mangling them, please do so entertainingly."
She is often confused as being either a school teacher or a dominatrix. Her life is weird.
