Angela, the Author
I started writing at the age of 12. I had a typewriter
and, living a simple island life, my imagination was all
that I had. I later turned life experiences into poetry
and spoken word and writing becames my therapy. I
had accumulated so much that I decided to publish
and became engaged in performance art.
My published books to date are “The Light, The Dark
and Everything in Between”, a book on my writings,
philosophies, and poetry. In this book I take my
readers on a journey starting with the DARK, opening
your eyes to the dreary and desolate side of life. My
readers are lost in shadows of dark and devious
emotions, very raw and real life. I then take them to
the IN BETWEEN where memories and stories of odd
ideologies fill the pages. I end the book in a softer
tone of the LIGHT. I wrote this with the intent to have
my book be an inspiring, consoling and encouraging
“Artist Confessions” came years later. This book is a mix
of my art and poetry and one with deep meaning.
I dedicated this to anyone who has the liberty and
aptitude to express themselves freely without fear
of repercussion from the masses. I was labelled the
most provocative artist in Belize after this publication.
Humans fear the truth and this book is all TRUTH…. I
performed my spoken word pieces regularly on stage
at poetry slams and festivals, the jazz festival and at
women bin literature at local universities.
