Hughes, Angela R.
Angela R. Hughes is the part of the KWA Executive team, as the Leadership Director. She loves to coach and inspire, while encouraging and supporting KWA Chapter Leaders.
Angela is a historical fantasy and romance author based in Waco, Texas. Her ambition is to write stories that grip and provoke readers, alluring them into her fascinating world of myth and legend.
She believes in the power of dynamic, inspired storytelling. She has always been intrigued by folklore and legend, and desired to create her own. Particularly drawn to Arthurian legend and its ancient roots in the history of the Cymraeg (Welsh) people, she has extensively studied Arthurian legend and Celtic mythology.
Much of her fascination with the Celtic world began during her time living in Ireland, where she fell in love with the history and landscapes of Ireland, Wales, Scotland, and England.
In addition to writing, Angela spends her time researching ancient histories and languages—which led her to learn to speak the Welsh language. She also enjoys painting, inspiring others, being with her family, chatting with fellow fantasy nerds over coffee, baking, visiting wineries, and traveling.
The Once and Future Chronicles, Book One: Elanor and the Song of the Bard is her first published novel. She is currently working on sequels including Book Two: Merlin and the Magic of Time, and Book Three: Arthur and the Golden Dragon.
