Equipped with a professional writing degree from Augusta State University, Angela Kay always
had the imagination and passion of a writer. She has written many, many short stories in her
lifetime, most of which won't ever see the light of day!
During college, her playwright professor had urged her to submit her one-act play to a 2009
playwright contest. To her shock and glory, she was one of 23 across the United States to win for
her one-act entitled “Digging Deeper.” Because of this, she was able 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 in. Finally, finding the nerves to show it to the
public, Angela published it in 2016 with ThomasMax Publishing. A year later, she followed it up
with a second book, “Blood Runs Cold.”
Angela’s third book, an FBI thriller, was released in March of 2018. “I Can Kill” was a finalist in
the American Book Fest.
Angela draws her inspiration from international bestselling author, Steven James, as well as
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, Celtic Thunder,
Bon Jovi, and Jeremy Camp.
Angela lives in Augusta, Georgia with her crazy calico, Maggie
