Angie has two different children's book series. Her first book, Dori's Gift, is a part of her "Appalachian Heritage" series which is a collection of stories that bring the region to life as the reader travels back in time to a different era.
The second series is "Gracie's Mysteries, Super Spy Series". Gracie is a curious ten year old that loves nothing more than investigating around her neighborhood. The Mystery at Darcy's Discount Store tells of her first adventure where her inquisitive mind helps her solve a mystery at Darcy's store.
Although Angie stays busy writing and teaching, she can often be found traveling with her husband, Derek, a church consultant and minister. They enjoy visiting churches and meeting new people as they work together. She cherishes her children and grandchildren and loves spending time with them. Her greatest desire is to allow God to use her in every aspect of her life.
This book was written to help children learn to 'SAY NO' to smoking.
