Angela Amman_Headshot_March 2014Angela Amman is a short story and essay writer who lives in southeastern Michigan with her husband and children. She is a mother to two rapidly growing children, a gatherer of moments, and a weaver of words. Collecting her family’s stories is a gift-in-progress for her daughter and son. She blogs at, reviewing books and capturing the craziness and beauty that weave together to create something extraordinary.

Angela is thrilled to share others’ stories as a co-director/co-producer of Listen to Your Mother Metro Detroit. She is a managing editor at Bannering Books and contributing writer at AllParenting and Savvy Sassy Moms.

Angela plans on running her fourth half-marathon this fall. She developed a running habit in college, the same year she writes about in her My Other Ex essay. When she should be sleeping, she works on her latest short story collection. Her short stories have appeared in her collection, Nothing Goes Away, and various anthologies.

You can find her on Facebook here and here, Twitter, and Google +.
