13 Year old Girl Writes and Publishes 2 books

A teenager in the US, Angela Content has written and self published 2 books. The 13 year old who loves to read became inspired to write her own stories that have now turned into 2 self-published books. One is a sci-fi fantasy titled “Awake and Alive,” and the other is a romance novel titled “Shattered.” Each book took her 3 months to write, with her latest novel reaching just over 200 pages. She also writes the stories by hand and explains that doing so helps create a constant flow of creativity.

Angela’s mother, Marie Content, says that she had no idea her daughter was serious about becoming an author until she approached her one day and was surprised to hear the news. “At first she said, ‘Mommy, I’m going to write a book. I'm writing my own book,’ I said, ‘OK.’ She said, ‘I'm going to publish it.’ I said, ‘OK,’. “And then finally one day she said: ‘Mommy, my book is going to publish. I already transmitted everything — it’s going to take 24 hours, they’re going to review it. I said, ‘OK,’” Marie Content said. “And then the next day, I heard it’s on Amazon. I’m like, ‘Oh my God!’”

After finishing both of her novels, Angela used the website CreateSpace to self-publish both of her books. They are now available on several websites, including Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Her mother says her daughter’s passion for reading was helped by the limited TV and Internet access she was allowed growing up and encourages other parents to instill similar discipline. “I wish all the parents can do the same, keep the electronic stuff away from the kids and talk to them more; hear what they have to say,” Marie content said. As for her advice to other kids, Angela said: “Continue to follow your dreams. You’re going to feel great once you actually accomplish what you set your mind to.”
