I blog about living a joyful balanced life no matter what you’ve been through.
If you are a survivor of abuse – or life in general – and are in the healing process, I am all about moving on and share ways to do just that.
I teach lots of ways to get out of fear and pain and into living a full happy life.
You CAN living happily ever after, no matter what you’ve been through. I’m here to prove it to you.
Below is a bio for you to copy and use if you’re sharing “Angela Shelton”.
Angela Shelton’s Bio
Angela Shelton is an acclaimed filmmaker, writer, actress and public speaker.
Angela teamed up with Gavin to adapt her first novel into the film Tumbleweeds. The film won the filmmaker’s trophy at the Sundance Film Festival and brought the lead actress, Janet McTeer, an Academy Award nomination and a Golden Globe win.
Angela began writing screenplays and teleplays for Showtime, Sony Classics and Canal + and received outstanding reviews for her adaptation of Kaye Gibbon’s novel Charms for the Easy Life for Showtime starring Gena Rowlands and Mimi Rogers.

Angela’s directing debut, the multi-award winning documentary Searching for Angela Shelton, led to appearances of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Live, 48 Hours Investigates, NPR, Lifetime Television and the cover of the New York Times.
She next wrote Finding Angela Shelton about how her experience making the documentary changed her life forever and caused her to stop self-abuse in her own life.
Angela has traveled the world speaking to various audiences about the epidemic of abuse. She has spoken in Congress, universities, military bases, high schools, elementary schools, community centers, conferences and seminars nationwide and abroad.
She has helped thousands of people learn how to move forward and live “happily ever after.” Her unique perspective and joyful humor inspire others “to live a joyful life no matter what you’ve been through (and we all have a story).
The Be Your Own Hero Healing Workbook is Angela’s most popular product, helping people move past pain and into living fun healthy lives.

WANT MORE Projects?
Well, okay then. I practice what I preach and am living happily ever after no matter what I’ve been through!
One of my lifelong dreams was to live in a barn house in the country and write books while being married to my true love with little ones and a bunch of critters like goats, chickens and dogs running around.
Well, I married my first love! I left the big cities and moved to the country. We have the location for the barn house and the farmhouse that goes along with it has been renovated. I am now on my fourth book.
How Do You Get ALL This Done?
Yes, I have time to writes books AND continue to speak and make videos and blog. HOW? It’s amazing what you can do when you’re not driving in LA four hours a day!
I am very passionate about The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton - a fantasy vocabulary builder book series.
I believe kids are WAY smarter than many adults give them credit for and I want to challenge their minds instead of dumbing them down.
Tilda Pinkerton is filled with lots of life lessons and is written to expand the heart, mind and vocabulary. It even has a gorgeous footnotes throughout the book (I know – Footnotes!) with HUGE wild and rare words to totally twist up your tongue.
Plus, we could all use a fantasy that has a happy ending after one wild ride – sounds like life, doesn’t it? It is about life – just set in the Sombrero Galaxy!
It is written for precocious 9-12 year olds and the biggest buyers are women 50 and up! They LOVE Tilda Pinkerton and I love them!
For Younger Readers and Teachers:
After years of helping people who work in trauma and recovery, I wanted to branch out and help teachers too.
So, I wrote a series of Tilda Pinkerton chapter books for younger readers (K-3) and created an interactive smart board friendly website to go along with it for teachers to use in their classrooms.
Folkmanis puppets sponsored the books so there will be 344 puppet videos to teach the definitions of the larger words.
There are big words in the chapter books too!
WANT Even More??
Okay, fine then!
I am working on the book that the movie Tumbleweeds was based on. It is a peek into the lives of 3 generations of Southern women called Every Tom Dick and Harry. I’ve outlined a story about my grandmother and her recipe box too, that’s set aside to start writing while babies are sleeping.
Yes, I’m what they call prolific and multi-passionate. I work all the time and I LOVE what I do too!
I have some books under a different name for adults about my modeling days. They cover stories like the time I was almost kidnapped in Casablanca and how I got out of the trap a psycho set up for me in Hollywood. My life could be a series of books, I tell ya. So, I’m writing them! The first on comes out in the fall of 2013.
Why a different name? Because the stories are pretty naughty, tell-all and very snarky. We did not think it was appropriate for Angela Shelton to be on those books AND on the Tilda Pinkerton series. So, my healing work and my children’s book are super clean (although I do say Stop Raping Kids, Go F Yourself on stage!) and my other book series are for my mature lady friends!
True to my mission, there are valuable lessons in the stories about how to avoid psychos, protect yourself and be empowered.
Want to know about them? Shhhhh (go here).
