About Angela Kay
One of her college professors who taught playwrighting had urged her to submit her one-act play to a 2009 playwright contest. To her shock and surprise, she was one of 23 across the United States to win for her one-act entitled "Digging Deeper." Being one of the winners allowed her 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 first 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. She has since rereleased her first two books under Stained Glass Publishing.
Angela draws her inspiration from international bestselling author Steven James, 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.
She lives in Augusta, Georgia with her mischievous black cat, Loki. Maggie, her crazy calico, lives forever in her heart and is missed daily.
