Angela Tempest is the author of the Paronian Legends series, The Adustum Diaries, and Copy Cat Earth: The Glugenal Suit middle-grade fiction space fantasy serial. She resides in a quiet sleeper town near a beautiful mountain range in Utah. She has a brilliant scientist and inventor for a husband, seven amazing step-children, and one biological daughter—all whom she cherishes above all else the world offers.
From first grade on, Angela was a very good reader—always in the top reading group. But she didn’t find her love for reading fiction until taking a job at a Scholastic Books call center after graduating high school. Between book-order phone calls from school teachers, Angela read The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and many other classic books for the first time.
Within the next few years, Angela was introduced to, and began reading, epic fantasy by Robert Jordan, David Eddings, Anne McCaffrey, and countless others. By joining a scifi/fantasy book club at her favorite bookstore she was exposed to science fiction authors like Isaac Asimov, David Brin, and David Weber. Her love of these genres grew and their fiction worlds were her daily escape from life.
Angela’s love of reading was soon transformed into a life-changing moment. During the newly released Fellowship of the Ring movie (2001) she was so impacted by “the experience” that she exited the theater determined to have the same impact. She wanted to create moments and experiences that changed lives, like hers had been changed.
Since 2001, Angela has spent years writing and honing her experience-creating talent through the medium of writing. She relishes weaving nuggets of truth and quotable quotes into her stories.
