Angie Frazier Author Visit Kit
Angie Frazier grew up reading Nancy Drew mysteries, Christopher Pike thrillers, "Choose Your Own Adventure " books, and the Little House on the Prairie series. When it came to writing her own stories, it seemed natural to blend together everything she loved in a good book! Her first novel, a young adult historical fantasy Everlasting (June 2010) is a high seas adventure laced with romance and magi9c. Her first middle grade novel, The Midnight Tunnel: A Suzanna Snow Mystery (March 2011) took shape after Angie visited the historic Fairmont Algonquin Hotel in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick. She knew she'd found the perfect place to set a mystery starring a young, aspiring detective who stumbles into a kidnapping plot.
