Angelica Banks

Angelica Banks was born on the tenth and a half of August when two writer friends decided they would like to move up in the alphabet.

Heather Rose and Danielle Wood (who celebrate their birthdays on the tenth and eleventh of August, respectively) created Angelica to be the author of the books Heather and Danielle wanted to write for children. Both mothers of three, Heather and Danielle have read and loved thousands of children’s books, and often thought of writing children’s books of their own. Having surnames beginning with R and W, Heather and Danielle were accustomed to being shelved—in bookshops and libraries—at the height of browsers’ knees and ankles. So, when they wanted a pen name to share, they settled on ‘Angelica Banks’—the angel of the early letters of the alphabet.

Angelica’s first book, Finding Serendipity, is the story of Tuesday McGillycuddy and her beloved dog Baxterr with a double r, who—while in search Tuesday’s missing mother, the famous writer Serendipity Smith—discover the mysterious and unpredictable place where stories come from. Here, Tuesday befriends the fearless Vivienne Small, learns to sail an enchanted boat, tangles with a truly evil pirate, and discovers the truth about her remarkable dog. And along the way she learns what it means to be a writer and how difficult it can sometimes be to get all the way to The End.

Danielle and Heather have now launched the second book in the series: A Week Without Tuesday.
