Angie is the author of Anywhere But Here, a collection of short stories that is forthcoming (check back for updates). Her recent short stories and essays have appeared in numerous publications, including Carve Magazine, Adelaide Literary Magazine, Cutthroat, Halfway Down the Stairs, The Helix, Ignatian Literary Magazine, Stirring, The Summerset Review, and Red Savina Review. Her short story “Things We Should’ve Said” earned Honorable Mention in the Fall 2016 Very Short Fiction Contest from Glimmer Train. 

She has written about the complex lives of women in the Midwest over the years, with an interest in contemporary themes of grief and loss and resilience and survival, while being set in harsh and isolated places of the rural Midwest and the Plains. Her characters wonder about the paths not taken, their dreams left unfulfilled; and underneath, there is the inescapable wish to flee far from all the problems that have bound them. She is also the award-winning screenwriter and director behind “Redmonton,” an original series inspired by her hometown in the Ozarks.

Angie was born and raised in Springfield, Missouri, a small city on the edge of the Ozarks. After earning her degree in writing from Missouri State University, she spent several years working in marketing, blogging, and travel writing in Washington, DC and now lives with her husband in Portland, Oregon.
