Author Information

Angie Belcher is a writer and teacher, specializing in teaching English as a second language. She once described herself as a self-confessed adrenaline addict who felt the fear but tried everything anyway. Sky diving, scuba diving, caving, abseiling and anything with an element of danger were once her weekend relaxation. However, nowadays you're more likely to find her with a good cup of tea reliving and embellishing her tales of adventures to anyone who will listen. Angie rates her scariest moment as a toss between hanging upside down 3000 ft above the earth when her parachute harness got caught in the doorway of a plane and being eyed up as a tasty shish-ka-bob by a marlin in Papua New Guinea. She has drawn upon her spine tingling, hair raising, premature-aging experiences to enrich her literary career writing articles, educational text and children's books. A google search will pull up many titles including 'The Girls in the Kapa Haka , 'The Woven Flax Kete' and 'Adventures in Cyberspace'. In 2008 she took leave from her job to concentrate on writing. In a seemingly predestined experience she found herself living in the house of her great aunt who had emigrated from Stromboli, Italy in 1913. While cleaning and documenting its belongings she discovered not only the hidden personal belongings of her great-aunt but a fascinating insight into her own Italian ancestry. The story can now be read in Angie's first adult novel '39 Brighton Street' published in 2012. Angie takes a deep interest in cultural diversity and in 2013 moved to Port Vila, Vanuatu to teach and immerse herself in a developing country. Her goal now is to find and mentor emerging Ni-Vanuatu writers.
