About Angela

Angela Dalton was once a producer of online kids’ games and other cool, nerdy things. She grew up in the Midwest reading lots of book, watching Star Trek on repeat, and guzzling red Kool-Aid. Now an adult, two of these three things have inspired her to write her own stories, and the third is a once-a-year treat (can you guess which one?).


Author of books for young minds, she has three forthcoming picture books: Ruby’s Reunion Day Dinner (2021), Show the World! (2022), and To Boldly Go: How Nichelle Nichols and Star Trek Helped Civil Rights (2023).

A member of the Bay Area #Ownvoices Book CreatorsSCBWI and the 12×12 Picture Book Challenge, she now lives in Oakland, California with her husband, son, and way too many “to be read” books on her bedside table.

Angela is represented by Mary Cummings, agent and founder of Great River Literary.
