Angela Golden Bryan, an acclaimed storyteller, author, and actress, grew up on the beautiful island of St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, in a culture rich in oral tradition. As a child, she listened in fascination to stories about Anansi, the mischievous spider; became “scared to death” by the goat-foot woman; and was amazed at the bravery of her great-great-grandmother, Moriah, who took part in the history-making event, Fireburn. Eventually, Angela told these stories to her own children and community, and is now sharing them with her country and beyond. In addition to Angela’s book, Fireburn the Screenplay, she has written for the internationally published devotionals Light from the Word and Vista.
As a Yeoman in the Navy, Angela was stationed in Southern California, Hawaii, and Southern Spain, and currently lives in South Florida with her husband, with holiday visits from their two adult “children.” While serving in the Navy she earned her Master of Science degree in Counseling Psychology from Chaminade University of Honolulu. Angela also earned a Master of Practical Theology degree from Wesley Seminary at Indiana Wesley University and has worked on the staff of several churches in a variety of positions.
