A middle-aged trucker who writes GLBT (and sometimes heterosexual) romance novels. Angelia Sparrow is a five-time loser of the Darrel Award (the Memphis SF and Fantasy Award), a double loser of the Gaylactic Spectrum Award and a frequent convention guest around the Southeast and Midwest. She has been writing professionally since 2004, and writing steampunk since 2008. When not traveling with The Literary Underworld author consortium, she is a part-time inventory clerk and full-time trucker's wife. She has two children still at home. She can usually be found at conventions wearing goggles and a battered leather hat and wielding knitting needles or a crochet hook with reckless abandon.
