About the Author
Author Angela Biscup (a.k.a. SolarCat02)
Angela can spot a typo from a mile away unless it is one of her own. She is skilled in creating personalities for believable fictional characters while neglecting all mention of physical characteristics. She can devour a full box of pizzelles in a single sitting without noticing and she communicates her feelings for others through baked goods.
Apparel & Accessories
Angela prefers to wear skirts and dresses rather than pants. As a result she appears to take great pride in her appearance but in actuality it's just faster. Plus she gave up trying to find pants that fit a long time ago. She believes that life is too short to wear boring socks. She also enjoys necklaces and dangling earrings but knows better than to wear them around the kids.
Angela wears an ocular device which has been perfectly calibrated to allow her to see as well as the most visually-gifted of humanity.
Angela studied Engineering in college, with Bachelors and Masters degrees in Mechanical Engineering, an undergrad minor in Mechatronics and a graduate Certificate in Engineering Management. Somehow despite all of these she can still spell werds. Usually.
Accomplishments & Achievements
Angela has survived multiple abusive relationships and years of therapy to rediscover who she truly wishes to become. She is back to writing again after having been discouraged to the point of stopping almost two decades ago.
Failures & Embarrassments
The most important lesson Angela learned from college was that she could accomplish anything she pushed to achieve but she could not always accomplish these on her typically aggressive timescales. This was a difficult lesson to learn, but one which has served her well thus far in life. She has also learned through heartbreaking trial and error that she has an abysmal taste in men. She has since learned to use her initial feelings of attraction as a giant "Do Not Enter This Relationship" warning sign.
Angela enjoys studying the interpersonal dynamics of groups and working to assist them in achieving their goals. She generally uses these skills for good. She also enjoys music, having studied the French Horn and later the Trumpet. Her trumpet playing was banned from the pastoral singers as they foolishly preferred singing hymns to jazz. She is the mortal enemy of the Sousaphone and was once hospitalized after an encounter with a particularly stealthy specimen lurking above an instrument cabinet, but despite this she bears them no ill will.
Angela strives to be her best. This isn't easy, but she believes it to be worth the effort. She wishes to leave the world better than she found it, and help others learn from her own mistakes.
Likes & Dislikes
Angela loves playing with her children, baking for family and friends, writing, and taking long bubble baths which preferably involve pizza. (Pineapple belongs on pizza). She also enjoys gaming, particularly RPGs and puzzle games. She loves animals. She dislikes disingenuous people, anchovies, wet socks, and being cold.
Angela is happily married with two beloved daughters. She wishes she lived closer to all of her two sisters and three brothers so she could spend more time with them. She also enjoys outings and events with her in-laws.
Hobbies & Pets
Angela lives with two cats, an orange tabby named Peaches and a white calico named Cream. She enjoys baking, painting, singing, playing video games, and worldbuilding. She also plans RPG encounters and serves as a Game Master for her small group, if their schedules ever align to meet for a game.

Angela has a cozy house, a loving family, a kitchen full of baking ingredients, and a few extra pennies in a sock drawer somewhere.
