Hi, my name’s Angel Chadwick. I’m a mom, avid reader, avid reviewer and avid blogger. I’m a business minded person with business ideas. That successful, ambitious mentality runs in the family. I’ve traveled all over the world. So far Toronto, Ontario, Canada is my favorite place to visit. Niagara Falls I hope to see it again soon. It was such an amazing revelation to see it in real life up close and I do mean up close. I hope to travel again. There are a lot of other countries I want to see and live in. Australia, particularly Sydney and London (UK) I’d love to live in those places. I was born and raised in Mississippi in a small rural town. But I now live in a city in my home state. I’m a small town girl with a city heart. I’m half Cherokee Indian (both sides of my family paternal and maternal) and Ethiopian.
What would you say is your more iconic novel and why?
I don’t think I’ve reached that plateau yet where I can say I have an iconic novel. Uniquely written yes, but iconic, maybe one day, but I’m not thinking about it.
Which writers inspire you?
I wouldn’t say they inspire me, but certainly have several favorite, but to name a few here:
Edgar Allan Poe, Tennessee Williams, Bret Harte, Gwendolyn Brooks, Toni Morrison, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Langston Hughes, Sylvia Plath, William Faulkner, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Have you written any other novels in collaboration with other writers?
No. Not novels. I once co-wrote an upcoming author, but it was irksome and I’ll never do it again. Other than that I’ve done some ghostwriting for other authors off and on through the years.
When did you decide to become a writer?
Middle school was the catalyst for me wanting to explore the opportunity. But my dream and goal at first was to be a sketch artist, starting at the age of ten. I was starting to get into paper sculptures when I was about that same age, too and I’d built a house with furniture inside it. It was my first paper sculpture and my mother and siblings were amazed at how sturdy and unique it looked. It sat on my dresser for a while until one of my siblings accidentally destroyed it. Those talents have just morphed into my writing skills so I’m able to sketch and sculpt scenes, settings, characters, emotions plot, flow and pacing, storyline, etc. as a writer with my words and structural literary skills.
Do you write full-time or part-time?
I put in full time hours, but as far as financially it is a part-time job. But I’m working towards changing that. That will take time. But I’m heading in the right direction.
Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you?
Usually it’s a mixture of all of the above. But outlining doesn’t normally work for me. I’m more of a strategist. I strategize my stories and ideas, plot, etc.
Do you have a strategy for finding reviewers?
No. You just have to keep networking, keep promoting, put out new works and be willing to put in the work and time it takes to market and promote yourself.
What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews?
As a reader, I don’t write bad reviews that cut down the author. But I don’t sugarcoat either. My reviews are always honest and constructive.
