Kim Floyd of Real Mommies Read, a part of the Spartanburg Public Library says:
Angelia's ability to help our teen moms see themselves as she did was a special gift. She instilled within them a desire to make better choices, take control of their bodies and their lives. They realized their pasts didn't have to determine their futures. Angelia let them know their worth.

March brings spring and changes that I love, blooming flowers, kids running around outside, lovely…
But this March bought more than that for me, it made me reassess so many things, back in September I had this huge plan to do a fall change, but life and circumstances had other plans, there were occurrences that I had no control over and in the role I was cast, I had to make changes here and there. And I tell you I am pretty glad that I was able to do it, though, there were many times I wanted to screech, ‘God, why me?’ But here I am…
I have been writing and publishing books for over four years now and every single one of them has been a joy to write and joy to have people read and a huge growth process for me. I recall when I first read through Black’s Obsession, I was horrified at the number of errors…a book I had written long hand and published on a fluke…for the most part no one said anything…well a couple of people did….A woman who was part of an online group I was part of decided to blast about it because she felt I was getting too much praise from others…I understood…and let her have her say without saying anything back…she was right in so many ways…the second time was at a book signing about the same book…one woman was incensed about some of the language and even madder that the male character was so obsessed, she seemed to take it personal…but irony of irony she was the first one in line to purchase the follow up, not only that it is considered ‘the favorite’ with so many who have read all my books, go figure…then in rapid succession, I wrote Love Stories of Some People I Have Known, Cinnamon’s Universe and Brown’s Possession…I was all over the place selling books, promoting books, being acVernon Menchan, the pen name I was using at the time…Lord, was I tired…
In 2007 I wrote for the first time as me, “Is NO not Clear Enough For You? It was my first foray into Young Adult literature and it was a blessing. People of all ages loved it, one reviewer took exception to it, but still recommended it as a ‘must read’…found my young character ‘holier than thou and too grownup’…I had to smile at that, because I KNEW that young lady to be sure…not only that I wrote under my real name, Angelia Vernon Menchan…I have given away more of those books than I have sold and am glad about it…then I waited a whole year and wrote, Schae’s Story, then Ramblings and Mrs. Black…which bar none has sold better than all my books…thanks to God…in between there and then I published a couple of books that featured other authors…talk about learning some things…whew~
But now I am refocused and doing things as I am guided, in April I will publish RE_Rambled: Ramblings Special Edition: Food and Thought. I have never been more excited. Because Ramblings is who I am and what I have to offer, a ministry of sorts and I love that whatever I offer in that format is of benefit to someone…I also have support systems in place that have been necessary since the beginning but I was not ready to incorporate…Thanks God for that…So I am really loving March and where I am and where I am going…feels like newness, and it feels right for me~
BE THE PEACE YOU SEEK~
