About me

Hello and welcome

Angela Hooks, that’s me, literary artist: author, journal-keeper, writer, instructor, page designer, mother, friend, daughter and the list goes on, but it’s not all that important.  Here, at angchronicles, I’m a journal-keeper blogging about the world around me, making crazy choices, sharing my adventures, living my faith.
