About Angelina Kalahari
As her family traversed the desert in search of crops for their herds of karakul sheep, a childhood filled with strange legends, amazing animals and wonderful people, became her universe.
The gift of music by Mario Lanza and other tenors accompanied them on their travels and called to her soul's desire to share her voice.
When she left to study with other voice obsessives, it introduced her to a world far beyond her beloved Africa and brought fantastic performance opportunities.
Storytelling, such a big part of her childhood, became an inherent element in her performances, and she never stopped writing down her stories. When, due to illness, she could no longer share her voice as she had through singing opera, writing became her perfect creative outlet.
She writes contemporary romance to explore love, women's fiction to understand love and middle-grade novels to give love. What more is there than love?
You can contact her directly at email@example.com.

I could easily visualise George’s garden and his many friends he made there. I loved his relationship with Aunt Di and the evil witch certainly made me shiver!
A great story and an enjoyable read. I think this has the makings of an exciting series." Mary Anne Yarde, author of The Du Lac Chronicles.
"I couldn't put it down!" William, aged 12
"Loved it." Billy aged 10
Recurring nightmares, a strained relationship with his father, and threatening behaviour from the Fearsome Foursome at school would be challenging for most boys his age. But as an only child with a sensitive, artistic soul, George feels especially alone and ordinary.
When he spends an awesome holiday with his zany Aunt Di, a painter, he stumbles across several exciting secrets. Aunt Di’s London garden contains statues of a Gargoyle, a Griffin, a Unicorn and a Dragon. At first, George thinks of these as just ordinary statues of mythical creatures. But what if they are not? And what about Roy, the robin? Will George survive the adventure when the Witch turns out to be real? Will his life ever be the same again after his magical experiences?

Recipient of the Coffee Pot Book Club Award 2020
With over 35 years teaching, singing, acting, and directing experience and having been recognised by Queen Elizabeth II for her contribution to music, Angelina Kalahari is proud to present the first book in her fabulous new series — Your Voice, Your Superpower.
In Angelina's vast experience, she has found that stories are the best ways to learn and more importantly remember what we have learned. Angelina has chosen to use the story of an imaginary voice student, Jake Tyler, to illustrate how important breathing is to improve your health, voice production and self-esteem.
So what are you waiting for? Let Angelina show you how to breathe optimally in a way that supports not only your voice for speaking or singing but also your physical, mental and emotional well-being.
"The techniques I've learnt improved my voice drastically! When I first started singing with Angelina I had no breath control or support. I soon realised that these skills were vital and have really enjoyed hearing my voice evolve as I have learnt new and more advanced techniques. Every week when I leave Angelina's house I feel like my voice has improved. Singing isn't just about producing notes, but also involves emotion and connection with an audience. Angelina has taught me to use this in my singing but to also transfer these skills into my speaking, whether it be to a small or large audience. It is a life skill that I will always be able to carry with me and will help me to have my opinions noticed in the workplace. She's an inspiration!" - Jade
"Angelina believes in the whole body and soul alignment in voice work. She's taught me that I have to 'feel' what I sing, even if that feeling is physically or emotionally hard. How to breathe - Simple. But many of us performers do it incorrectly. Understanding the body structure and how you see yourself in the mirror. Angelina often made me look myself in the eye in a mirror and sing. I found this hard but that was a lack of confidence and self esteem all of which Angelina nurtured gradually. Feeling where the sound resonates in the body, the ability to use the pelvic muscles, rib cage to sustain power. How to be a true performer - Not to listen to my own voice but to let the voice fly. To breath out on the sound and not force the voice." - Dawn
"It was very interesting to learn how to use my body as an instrument and to allow sound to flow freely from within. I never realized how singing is a physical exercise as much as an emotional experience. I'm grateful I learned that real singing is a skill - it's not just about making sounds that sound good, but it's about touching your audience and affecting them." - Adeolu
"What I learned from Angelina - You don’t have to scream to sing your feelings out, rather you must sing with your heart. The voice is an amazing instrument that changes all the time. change. Don’t be afraid to chase your dreams." - Justine
"I've enjoyed learning from Angelina very much. It was great to learn the correct way to breathe and to make notes sound loud and long. Most of all, I enjoyed learning how to perform in front of an audience and sing lyrics in a more expressive manner. My confidence has grown." - Sebastian
"I felt very comfortable studying with Angelina. Her direction is very clear. She gives specific examples and demonstrates what needs to happen which helps tremendously." - George
