Angie Frederickson is a writer and stay-at-home mom. When those worlds collide, she has been known to hide from her children in order to meet writing deadlines. One favorite hiding/writing spot is her bedroom closet. Frederickson graduated from Vanderbilt University with a bachelor’s degree in English and from Georgia State University with a master’s degree in healthcare administration. Her background is in advertising and marketing strategy, and she was an account executive for advertising agencies in both Atlanta, Ga. and Nashville, Tn. Frederickson was also a marketing manager for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Then, she became a mom and her professional life changed. Ended, actually. Now that her children are all in school, she has rejoined the working world. She lives in Memorial with her husband, three children, dog, bunny and two turtles. When she is not driving overscheduled children to activities or dodging PTA volunteer requests, she enjoys playing tennis and running.
