Angie Arndt is a small town Southern girl who writes mysteries and suspense with a Christian world-view. Her plans for her life didn’t include writing, but somehow God nudged her this way and that until it was clear that this was where He wanted her to be.
With an M.Ed. from the University of South Carolina, she’s taught middle-school science, computer systems, customer service in the public schools and corporate world. She’s ministered at her church by leading Bible Studies, organizing and speaking at retreats, teaching Sunday School, singing in the choir and holding leadership positions in the Women’s Ministry. In 2007, she left her career as a curriculum designer when she realized that God was calling her to write how His love endures in the midst of life’s trials.
A member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and the Carolina Christian Writers (local chapter of the ACFW), Angie served as the Area Coordinator for the ACFW Carolinas in 2007. She’s attended the following to help her in her journey as a writer: Writing for the Soul, Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference, and ACFW National Conferences. She’s also been a member of the Christian Writers Guild, Romance Writers of America and Faith, Hope and Love, Inc – the inspirational chapter of RWA. She’s the editor of the Richland County Sheriff’s Department Citizens Academy Alumni Association newsletter, published in Backyard Friends – the magazine for Heartbeat of the Home radio program – and designed several websites and blogs.
Angie attends a small country church with a very large heart. She and her husband Charles live in the “middle of a big wood” and venture out occasionally to see where the road will lead.
