Angela Fish is a writer who specialises in intergenerational communication, women’s writing and Welsh Writing in English. She gained her MPhil in Literature at the University of Glamorgan (now the University of South Wales) in 1995 and became a principal lecturer there until 2009. From 2004 - 2009, she was also the Director of the Wales Centre for Intergenerational Practice. Her publications include non-fiction, fiction, short stories and poetry, and she has worked with local schools and communities to improve communication between the generations. She has been in demand, nationally and internationally, as a conference presenter and an invited speaker in her field.
Intergenerational practice, together with an interest in myths and legends from around the world, human psychology, and the natural world, has shaped much of Angela’s writing. Ben and the Spider Gate (Book Guild Ltd, September 2015) was her first book for children. Ben and the Spider Prince (April 2016) is the sequel, followed by Ben and the Spider Lake (September 2016). A picture book, The Captain’s Favourite Treasure was published by Matador in 2018. The Fractured Globe (Darkstroke Books, December 2020) is her debut novel. Angela grew up, and lives, in Wales and is a member of the Society of Authors.
