Blog Tour : Songbird

I don't know if you guys have heard, but there is this little book called Songbird that I received recently on a book tour and WOW. You can find my review here or by clicking Songbird tag below. It's the 1st stop of the Songbird Book TeenBookScene Tour and Angela has come by the blog to talk a little about herself and her projects. Find Angela on Twitter!
I am a Canadian transplant, living and working in the US who, after years of procrastination, started writing and hasn't stopped since. Not an easy task considering I have a husband and young daughter, and also work full time as an elementary school teacher.

When I first started writing, I had no idea how to approach it, and honestly I still don't. Every writer I talk to starts differently. For me that means sitting down at the computer and typing as it comes to me. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. My first novel is still under the revision process thanks to my unplanned approach. Songbird is actually the second novel I wrote and most of it was done in a month during NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Finishing Songbird and then the revising and editing took a bit longer, but this story just flowed for me much better than my other novel.

With Songbird finally complete, and my first novel temporarily shelved due to revision issues, I am working on Graced, A Trilogy. The Graced trilogy follows three sisters, Phoebe, Chloe, and Lilly as they struggle to find the purpose of the special gifts they've been graced with: truth telling, prophecy, and healing. The first book, Liar, is Phoebe's story, followed by Lilly's book Heal Me, and will conclude with Witness, Chloe's tale.
