Where love and danger are everywhere

  Early in my writing career the advice I heard repeatedly was to write what I knew. But in writing romantic suspense I quickly realized I couldn’t write what I know—I mean I don’t know anything about having a psycho for a stepfather who kills my family—it’s more about writing what scares me. Not just scares me, but absolutely terrifies me. I have to tap into that part of my mind that secretly still wonders if there are monsters under my bed, in my closet, and in the laundry room. What? You don’t have monsters in your laundry room? Are

I heard someone say recently that all romance novels are really just a retelling of the fairy tale in Cinderella. What do you think? Are all romance novels about a damsel in distress who is waiting for Prince Charming to ride in on his white horse and save the day? Want to know what I think? I think Cinderella should have spoken up to Prince Charming and told him that was her shoe, told her stepmother to clean her own house, and her stepsisters to stuff a sock in it, and lived happily ever after with a guy who recognized

I will admit that I had absolutely no idea what I wanted on the cover of Hiding In Plain Sight. I knew I wanted it to be beautiful, I knew it needed to accurately represent the story, and I knew I wanted to see it as soon as possible. That’s it. That’s all I knew. When I opened the email with the first mock-up of this cover I instantly fell in love. Like heart racing, palms sweating, teenage girl at a Bieber concert in love. I don’t know who those people are on the cover, but they are now Kierra and

After years of dreaming, months of writing, months of editing, and months of sending our query letters “the call” finally came. Note: in 2015 the call has become “the email” but that sounds so  much less dramatic that it’s not nearly as satisfying to proclaim! I was so excited when I got the call and signed my contract, I waited eagerly for what came next. Imagine my distress when what comes next is more waiting. As I write this my baby, Hiding in Plain Sight, is in the hands of an editor whose name I do not yet know. My cover

Sneak Peek!

As you may have guessed, Angela Evans is not my given name. Like many authors I wanted to choose a name that was still me without using my name. Angela is my first name, my real name, and I chose to use that because I wanted readers to call me Angela I’m Angela. I’m not Angie. There’s a difference. If you know anyone named Angie they probably do not like to be called Angela, right? I don’t like to be called Angie! It is like fingernails on a chalkboard–no exaggeration. Evans is not, however, my last name. It’s the last name of
