Angela Nicole Chu is a thirtysomething bestselling author from Louisville, KY. She writes New Adult fantasies with badass female heroines, cinnamon-roll heroes, and the occasional vampire or two. Most of her tales also include suspense and sleuthing. She blames her mother for raising her on Dateline Mysteries.

Chu completed her first novel in the seventh grade. It was a horrendous mess and a crime against humanity, but it was fabulous practice. Especially when she continued on with three more of them. Since then, she's lived her life with a mix of kindness, pettiness, and general mischief, and it shows in her books.

Chu currently resides in Louisville, KY with her husband and son, their four cats, and their two puppies. She loves chatting with her readers, so don't be shy :)

Okay, perhaps I didn't take things THAT seriously. I penned and published a short (17K word) novella called "Hoodrat Sh!t, Vol. 1" in July 2019 as a comedic vampire story. It was actually decently received, but it was hard to market because of the length, lack of depth, and the curse word in the title. I eventually went back and reworked this book, doubling its length and adding some romance and dark situations, and it was reborn as the first book of my Pretty Little Vampires series.

As for "Gifted Blood Academy", those two books were originally published as a part of the clean, middle-school grade Ytherynia anthology set. I was never too pleased with them, as I am admittedly not a clean, child-friendly writer, and my readers do not expect clean, child-friendly books. So, I also couldn't properly market this series either. I reworked the first two books New Adult urban fantasy and will be republishing them as my Shifter Syndicate series in mid-2023!

WHAT HAPPENED TO Hoodrat SH!T and Gifted Blood Academy??

After years of publishing short stories on the Internet, I published my first indie book in May 2012. I was a senior in college and had no clue what I was doing. The book read like crack fanfiction, I did zero marketing, and I couldn't figure out why it didn't sell (oops). I published a sequel for it FOUR YEARS LATER in 2016, which was a much stronger book but tied to a weak first-in-series (double oops). Immensely frustrated, I scrapped it all and began writing The Belle Âme Chronicles, which was published in May 2018. I consider that the start of my writing career, as that's when I started taking things seriously.

You've Been Published For Over A Decade But Don't Acknowledge It. Why??

I publish New Adult books, all of which have a fantasy aspect. Some have a strong fantasy aspect and include vampires and other supernatural beings, while others mention hints of the supernatural or cyberpunk-esque technology. However, I always say that if you like one of my series, you'll probably like the rest. I love writing quirky, complex, mostly anti-hero characters that show a lot of heart but are also heavily flawed. The main characters tend to land in their 20s, but a range of 16-40 is standard. My books almost always have both a mystery component and a romance element, so you'll get your bedroom fun while danger lurks in the nearest window!
