ANGELA LA VOIE is the author of hundreds of articles about health, a few about technology, two practice novels, an unpublished collection of poems, and a memoir that she’s currently revising.
Born in Panama to American parents, she earned a B.A. in English and communication (Phi Beta Kappa) from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in New Brunswick. In Boston and New York, she wrote about advances in medical research. In New York, her stories were distributed through what was then called The New York Times Syndicate to newspapers, TV stations, and radio stations around the globe. Her journalism credits include Chicago Sun-Times, The Dallas Morning News, Medical Tribune, MSNBC.com, Santa Fe New Mexican, and ZDNet.
With Angela’s move to Colorado in 1998, she spent roughly a decade helping companies large and small launch new tech-related products, projects, and ventures. She wore hats in consulting, project management, instructional design, training, marketing, and business development.
She decided to pursue creative writing in middle age after a near-fatal whitewater accident. Since she was going through all the trouble of learning to read and write again anyway, she thought it was about time that she start living her writing dream. To support her ambitions, she returned to school and earned an MFA in creative nonfiction and poetry from Antioch University Los Angeles.
When she’s not spoiling her two golden retrievers or spending time with family and friends, Angela loves to scour the globe hunting for treasures to use in her home renovation.
