Angela Roberts was born and educated on the Isle of Man before gaining a degree in French and business studies. After an eight-year career in marketing, she swapped the glitz and glamour of international travel for a keyboard and a classroom, dividing her time between teaching French and writing novels.
Her island upbringing has influenced her writing in many ways, none more so than with her first published novel The Fear of Flying Club (apparently being an aerophobe when you live on tiny rock in the middle of the Irish Sea is not particularly convenient).
In addition to writing novels, Angela enjoys writing lifestyle articles and short stories (one of which ironically won her two return flights to Paris).
The Fear of Flying Club will launch at this year’s Manx Litfest.
