Thirteen-year-old Angela Content can officially call herself a published author. The Brooklyn native is an eighth-grader and definitely an inspiration. In an interview with CBS, she told reporters that no one believed her when she said she was going to write a book. It wasn’t until the book was about to be published in 24-hours that her mother began to take Angela’s allegations seriously.
Angela’s limited TV time gave her the drive to fall in love with reading, which prompted her to start writing. So far, Angela has published two books: the sci-fi fantasy story Awake and Alive and Shattered, a romantic novel. She has already made a couple hundred off of her books and has plans to release two more this summer. Watch the full interview on the next page.
