Author Spotlight (LaCricia A`ngelle)

I was privileged to meet this author at the BWABC Literary Festival this past September in Memphis, TN. I know it's been a while since I did an author spotlight, so for the beginning of the new year, I put the spotlight on fellow author LaCricia A`ngelle.

LaCricia A`ngelle is the author of Girl, Naw! and Positive Deception, Christian novels published by His Pen Publishing. A Chicago native, this wife, mother, licensed evangelist and top selling author is on the rise to the top!
With a writing career that began when she was just a child, LaCricia A`ngelle quickly realized that God had blessed her with the ability and an unrelenting love for the written word. She has taken her childhood talents of writing songs, short stories and even a non-fiction book as a teen, which she tossed to the side because of fear, to a powerhouse novelist who has matured in her craft thanks to God’s continued grace and HIS pen, which helps her, put the words together.
When asked about her genre of choice, LaCricia A`ngelle responds: “As a Christian Fiction Author, I not only write for entertainment, I also write for ministry. My goal in every piece of written work I produce is to draw someone closer to Christ. My characters face real situations and I write so that anyone who reads my work can get something out of it.”
Whether young or old, when you read a LaCricia A`ngelle original, prepare to laugh, cry, pray, and stop to say “hmmm.”
