I’ve been writing and giving seminars since childhood. At six I had my younger brother perform plays I’d written, bribing him with candy and favors, then I’d critique his performance. Later my style became gentler, more compassionate. Being a survivor of the school of hard knocks, I wanted to encourage others, so taught English and Drama to high school kids at risk. In the late ’80’s I started my own company, Angela Jackson Seminars, giving workshops on conflict, stress, and communication skills. I’d developed amazingly effective tools to deal with anger and wanted everyone to have them, so I wrote a book, Celebrating Anger, which became an International Best Seller.
I was asked to give a Key-note talk, and this terrified me. It was like walking the tightrope. With encouragement, I conquered my fear and began to enjoy giving presentations, because its all about helping people. I still do seminars and offer coaching sessions. And I write. On scraps of paper, in notebooks and in print. Writing is a big part of who I am.
I wrote another book, Celebrate Life – Create the Life you Love to Live, and this book represents my philosophy. I love life. With all its radiant colors and hues. I get inspired through music, art, reading, and most of all, through people. Life’s Jewels.
My new novel, Chasing Glitter, is about passion, betrayal and addiction. A not-to-be-missed page turner, it centers on a married woman who finds love with a younger man, and…Spoiler Alert, I can’t reveal what happens… but you will see for yourself when it is released April 2021.

I’m excited about this site and want it to be a place where people can share insights and ideas, despair and fears, joys and triumphs. I’ll post blogs, ideas and thoughts and hope you’ll respond. So now it’s your turn. What about you?
