Angela Knutsen was born in Worcestershire in 1955, where she grew up on a farm. She attended Pershore High School for 5 years. After 12 years as a bank clerk she met her future husband and they moved to La Rochelle, France. They married in 1985 and have three children. She has had dual nationality since 1990.
She taught English as a foreign language for several years to pupils whose ages ranged from 4 to 80! She now runs her own business selling old French postcards over the internet
Already a keen blogger, she started writing more seriously in her early 50s and was amazed at how her stories started to unfold on their own.
Her first published book 'Angie Brynner & Company' appeared on Amazon Kindle in November 2015, followed two months later by a collection of short stories; 'The Summer of 1970'. She’s currently editing another book ready for publication as well as writing and editing another short story collection.
