I’ve always loved storytelling. I started writing short crime stories at school and there’s an English teacher who will always have a special place in my heart for his feedback and encouragement.
When I got serious about craft, I started with the writers’ program at UCLA and was hooked. My journey didn’t stop there though and before I knew it, it had turned into an obsession.
After many years of serious study, I wanted to pass on what I’d learned to others who were beginning their writing journeys.
I eventually came full circle and provide feedback, and hopefully encouragement, to other people in my job as a lecturer in fiction writing.
I’m also a crime thriller author.
I write page-turning thrillers with high stakes, fully-rounded characters and plot twists that never let up until the adrenaline-packed climax. Or so I’ve been told…
“Angela McGlynn would normally be described as ‘the female Jack Reacher’ or ‘the female Jack Ryan’. That’s selling her short…Tense, absorbing, intelligent and fulfilling.”Rowena Hoseason – Murder, Mayhem & More
“Sharp has a talent for energetic prose…an engaging read and I look forward to more from her and the further exploits of McGlynn and Knox.” Crime Fiction Lover
“Everything a fast-paced, gritty, West Coast gumshoe thriller ought to be. And more.”Andy Martin – Author of Reacher Said Nothing: Lee Child and the Making of Make Me
“Charlie Fox and Angela McGlynn would get along just fine.”Zoe Sharp – Author of the Charlie Fox series
