ANGELINA ASSANTI –
AWARD WINNING BEST SELLING AUTHOR
Find Your Funny
I am Angelina Assanti. I was born in a small town in Massachusetts. I moved to Florida to go to college and never went back. I started writing when I was in college and wrote copy and produced my own radio show. While I was in college, I had a brief stint in stand-up comedy. You might have heard, funny people are trouble-makers so I decided I’d better do something that keeps me out of trouble. Writing books is fun and I can do it on my own schedule. I have three books out but I am currently finishing up my first mystery. My first book, “The Lottery Heiress” came out in 2013. My second book, “Mark Taylor’s Checkered Past” came out in 2014. While I was writing the third book in that series, I was diagnosed with cancer and wrote my most-successful book to date, “Thank God I Got Cancer…I’m Not a Hypochondriac Anymore!” which won two national awards and was a finalist in the International Readers’ Favorite contest. It’s also an Amazon Bestseller.
Thanks for stopping by.
