Angie Kinghorn is, in stolen moments, a writer of memoir and fiction. Her work has been published in “You Have Lipstick on Your Teeth!” and Other Things You’ll Only Hear From Your Friends In the Powder Room; Precipice: The Literary Anthology of Write on Edge, Volumes I, II, and III; and the BlogHer Voices of the Year: 2012.
Angie is a recovering attorney turned writer and stay at home mom; a certified bookaholic who will become frantic when between books. She’s a postpartum depression survivor and an advocate of both maternal mental health awareness and childhood vaccinations.
She loves a well punctuated life and is a firm believer in God, dark chocolate, and the Oxford comma. Friends predict that the availability of Sharpies combined with society’s affinity for bad grammar will eventually get her arrested.
Oh, and she squeezes toothpaste from the middle.
Angie is a native of Asheboro, NC. She received a B.A. in English with Honors in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina, and a Juris Doctor from Duke University School of Law.
