Hi, my name’s Angel M.B. Chadwick. I’m a mom, published author, publisher, blogger and world traveler.
- When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
AMBC: When I was thirteen years old and I wrote a short story for my middle school English assignment. My English teacher Ms. Wilson saw my potential and was so impressed with my writing that she bragged on me in class, which made a shy student like me feel good that I was good at something and I got an A+. I owe it all to Ms. Wilson. Thanks, Ms. Wilson I am a published author because of your belief in me.
- How long does it take to write your book(s)?
AMBC: Not long at all to start, but six years or more to finish for publication.
- What is your work schedule like when writing a book?
AMBC: I write every day or every chance I get. The muse is always working even in my sleep. There’s no schedule.
- Where do you get your ideas or information for your book?
AMBC: My own life experiences.
5. When did you write your first book?
AMBC: I wrote many books of all genres starting in my early teens, but the first one I could count as officially published was in 2014, a poetry memoir about my life from teen to adulthood, titled “Corridors of My Mind,” which I started writing in my teens and took me twenty years to write, finish for publication.
- What do you do when you’re not writing?
AMBC: I spend time with my eleven year old son who is autistic.
- What does your family think of your writing?
AMBC: My family is very supportive.
- How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
AMBC: I have written 1,051 books and counting. Two published on Amazon and thirteen on Wattpad. They’re all my favorite. My latest is on Wattpad, titled, Traveling Salesman: Astronomgonist. It has won six awards so far. Bookworm Awards-Second Place-Science Fiction 2018, Best Female Author-Majestic Awards 2018, Creative Minds Winner-Second Place-Science Fiction 2018, The Belle Amé Awards-Second Place-Science Fiction 2018, Winner of Round 3-Above & Beyond: A Monthly Challenge 2018, The Writers Awards 2018-2019-Third Place-Science Fiction.
- Any tips/suggestions on getting started?
AMBC: Just take a leap of faith and do it. Keep writing. Keep going even when you don’t want to.
- What do you think makes a good story?
AMBC: Plot, Story, Compelling, unique, diverse characters, descriptive, great dialogue and character interactions, several twists and turns, relatable, something that makes you think, leaves you wanting more and never lets go.
- As a child, What did you want to do when you grew up?
AMBC: To be an artist. I used to be a sketch artist and a paper artist (I made houses out of paper). I started at the age of ten. Can’t sketch or do paper houses anymore. Now I get to do that with my writing. Those talents are still there in my descriptive writing.
