Foreword Reviews

Angela McQuay, Book Reviewer

Angela has been a book lover since she was old enough to read. One of the first books that had a big impact on her was Watchers by Dean Koontz and it was one of her inspirations to become a writer. Though she hasn’t made it big as a novelist yet, she still practices her creativity by writing chat stories for two apps, working on cozy fiction, and dabbling in various projects she hopes someday to publish. As for her day job, she’s the co-owner of a digital marketing firm in the lovely (and often freezing) city of Omaha, Nebraska.

Angela enjoys books of every genre, though her true love is fiction. However, she’s been known to read and review plenty of nonfiction titles. As a blog writer, she has just enough knowledge on many subjects to be dangerous, which is what everyone wants in a book reviewer, right?
