Angela J. Townsend is a filmmaker and a traditionally published, award-winning author of gothic horror. Angela is a proud member of the Author's Guild in NYC. Angela is represented by the former Vice President of Paramount pictures, M. Kenneth Suddleson. She has a motion picture, the Forlorned based on one of her books and many others coming soon. 

In 2018 Angela won a noteable trademark lawsuit over her book title, The Forlorned. The person who sued Angela is a convicted child sex offender who had filed dozens of malicious and frivolous lawsuits against other innocent parties. The case ended up in the US Supreme Court, and winning freed Angela from years of harassment from what the press is calling "Trademark Trolls."

The best thing is my readers and fans of my motion picture. You are very important to me and I love you all.
Being a writer allows me to live my dreams. From the time I was old enough to understand what a book was--I've always wanted to be an author. There is nothing better. Reading a book is a major investment and I always keep my fans in mind as I write. Authors need support in order to gain success. Thank you for supporting my books. Happy reading!

The novel is a very atmosphereic gothic horror novel involving more ghosts connected to the lighthouse island. I'm having fun researching the project and interviewing historians. I love stories that are not only spooky but also connected to the sea. I hope fans of my books will enjoy it as much as I loved writing this spine chiller! (less)

“All greed leads to destruction.”

“The first time I saw him I didn’t know if he was wearing a beard or eating a muskrat.”
Angela J. Townsend, Angus Macbain and the Island of Sleeping Kings

“I was a struggling single mom when my novel, The Forlorned, became a motion picture. I thought my life had turned around for the better until a convicted child molester sued me for trademark infringement over the word FORLORNED. Finally, after three long years of legal proceedings, the US Supreme Court sided with me. Always stand up and fight for what is right. Never give in—never give up!”
Angela J. Townsend, The Forlorned

“One of the many things I learned at the end of that Classics corridor down which I ventured at the age of 18, in search of something I could not then define, was this, written by the Greek author Plutarch: What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. That is an astonishing statement and yet proven a thousand times every day of our lives. It expresses, in part, our inescapable connection with the outside world, the fact that we touch other people’s lives simply by existing.”
