Angela Dorsey lives on southern Vancouver Island. In the past, she has lived in a number of small towns throughout B.C. She is an avid animal lover and has a tendency to name her pets after things that remind her of her coastal home, such as Misty, Raven, and Cedar.
Angela is mainly a writer of juvenile fiction novels, though she occasionally dabbles in other genres as well. Her debut novel, Freedom (aka A Horse Called Freedom) was first published in 2001 by Stabenfeldt of Norway, and after that by Scholastic Canada. With two sequels, Freedom still has a faithful following.
Since that first publication, she has written more than twenty juvenile fiction books that have been published in eleven countries and translated into nine languages. They include Abandoned, a standalone novel, and the Freedom trilogy, the Horse Guardian series, and more recently, the Whinnies on the Wind series. In addition, she has one juvenile non-fiction book published, co-authored with Marina Miller, and numerous pieces in literary journals and anthologies, such as Creekstones, Room, On Spec, and Ascent Aspirations.
When she isn’t writing, daydreaming, gardening, hiking, or travelling, Angela enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She feels very lucky to be both a mom and a grandma, and especially enjoys living near all her kids and her beautiful grandchildren. She looks forward to continuing her explorations, both near and far.
