Biographical History

Angela Morrison is an American Mormon author who writes, in her words, "break your heart coming of age YA romances." She was born in Washington State, where she was exposed to writing from a young age. She attended writing classes and seminars throughout high school, and later studied English at Brigham Young University.

While at BYU, Morrison met and married her husband, an international business consultant. Soon after graduating with a B.A. in English, she lived in Canada, Switzerland, and Singapore, before settling in Scottsdale, Arizona. After raising four children, she turned again to writing and graduated with an MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2004.
