Hello Addicted to YA! This month we are featuring *Drumroll Please* Angel Chadwick! Let’s have a warm welcome for her here on this thread!!

Author Bio: I am an indie author who writes all genres, plays and an inventor.

I am currently separated and have a ten year old son who is autistic/nonverbal and making steady and exceptional progress daily. I will write his biography one day in the near future. And yes, I will be self-publishing it.

My novel "Weeping Well" is revised and has been re-released (July 2017) and is now on Amazon and other online participating stores in paperback and e-book. A sequel to "Weeping Well" will be added starting from 2008-2010. "Weeping Well" will be a four book series.

I have been writing for 25 years since I was 13 years old.

I have self-published my first of many books called "Corridors of My Mind," a nonfiction memoir about my life written in the form of poetry.

I have been published before in poetry anthologies a number of times before when I was very young through poetry contests.

When I was fifteen years old, I was once offered a publishing contract by Harlequin, although they didn't know how young I was at the time and I stupidly decided not to sign, I regret it still to this day and think I have bad author karma because of it. My mother said I should sign but, I didn't listen (Mom's usually know best, I should've listened) I wasn't as confident about my writing back then.

But, I always wanted to be an indie author. I wrote for my college newspaper and yearbook when I was nineteen majoring in English and Journalism.

I love mixing genres and subgenres, subplots and plots. I mix it up until its a quagmire/ paradox of infinite plots twists and turns, etc.

I am literally incapable of writing any other way. Besides, I get bored easily and crave and use the glory of unpredictability in my writing. My writing is very unique and I go beyond the edge of literature.

Book Series Name: Weeping Well



Book Description: Fear is like a looking glass....

No. I tend to read whatever I feel like reading.

Edgar Allan Poe, Bret Harte, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, the list goes on and on.

Creating characters, worldbuilding, plotting, storytelling, all the above.

Hi, Eric! Thanks for your question. There are mentions of him in my first book and in my second one Weeping Well. A tidbit of the main character's characterization is loosely based on my son. But you'll have to read Weeping Well to try and find out what that is.

Hello Angel, I think it is awesome that you bring awareness to your son and his condition in such a natural way. I have one on the spectrum as well. Just turned 16. *Hugs* wishing you the best writing success.

Thank you, Heidi! Same to you and your family as well! Wow sixteen! My son's ten. Time flies and I'm already scared of him becoming a teenager.

Thank you so much, Tacey! I am first, foremost and always my son's advocate. All the best to you and your family. My son is a hero. What he battles and overcomes everyday is remarkable. I only hope that all that I am and all that I do, (maybe one day) I can be seen through his eyes as his hero, too.
