Angela Moody

     Angela Moody is a native Vermonter who lives two doors down from the house where she grew up. Angela likes to say that she's gone far in life. Angela doesn't remember a time when she wasn't telling stories. Before she learned to read, she would look at picture books and tell herself stories based on what the pictures suggested to her. In first grade, she won a silver star for a story about a boy and his pony.
     Throughout her childhood, Angela was a voracious reader. Her favorite authors were John Steinbeck, Stephen King, Anya Seton, John Jakes, as well as Laura Ingalls Wilder and Louisa May Alcott. Angela would say her biggest influences in her choice of writing were John Jakes and Anya Seton.
     Angela received a Bachelor of Arts degree in history in 1985 from Trinity College of Vermont - now part of the University of Vermont. Angela still lives in Vermont with her husband, Jim, and her two cats. Their children live nearby.
     She has been writing historical fiction for more than twenty years. In recent years, Angela has turned to writing from a Christian worldview. She hopes her readers, who may have had very little exposure to the Gospel, will feel moved to discover the Bible.

No Safe Haven is her debut novel. Angela is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers
