About the Author
After reading Lousia May Alcott's "Little Men" as a preteen, Angela Welch Prusia knew two things: 1. she wanted to write, and 2. she wanted to help at-risk teens. When she is not writing, she and her husband volunteer with Teen Reach Adventure Camp, a summer camp program for foster teens. A portion of her books will help more teens attend camp. Three students inspired "Late Summer Monarch" after a suicide rocked the community where Angela spent her first year teaching. As residents searched for answers, Angela watched her students respond to the tension which unfolded in the seemingly idyllic small town. Years later, Angela and her husband began working with foster teens where she came face to face with the ugly reality of abuse. Peyton's story began to unfold, intertwining with the experiences from Angela's first year of teaching, and "Late Summer Monarch" was birthed. "BRAiN RIDE" was inspired by Angela's bike ride across Nebraska in the summer of 1999. Freezing early morning rides and road hazards provided real-life conflict. Long miles gave Angela time to know the characters in her head. She hopes you will love Logan and Jason as much as she does. If you learn a little something about the challenges of life with traumatic brain injuries, thank a soldier-many are suffering in silence today. "Tandem" was birthed from Angela's first tandem ride which lasted five minutes because the lack of control unnerved her. Thirteen years later, she attempted another ride with her husband and was hooked. Now Angela dreams of new books from the stoker's seat on their tandem whenever the two hit the road. When she is not writing, Angela loves traveling, swimming, biking, reading and spending time with her family.
