Angela Slatter is a bestselling author of science fiction, horror, and urban fantasy who has been writing freelance since 2011, even though she has been publishing her stories for five years more.
As such, she has been producing award-winning works for years, ever since she graduated with a creative writing master’s and doctorate degrees.

She has come to be known for penning stories that are spinoffs of traditional tales in the mold of Angela Carter.

Angela’s works often center on female antagonists and protagonists and have now been gathered into prestigious collections such as the 2014 published “Black-Winged Angels” and the 2010 published “Sourdough and Other Stories.”
In 2015, “Sorrows and Such,” her novella was published by Tor, while “Vigil” was published in 2016. Slatter now has more than two dozen works to her name published.

Her works range from single-standing novels, series, collections of short fiction, novellas, and contributions to series by other authors.

Due to her works getting a lot of critical acclaim, she has won several awards including seven Aurealis Awards, two Australian Shadow Awards, a World Fantasy Award, a Ditmar, and a British Fantasy Award among others.
Her work has been translated into Romanian, Bulgarian, French, Chinese, Turkish, Russian, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Japanese and Spanish.

As for the origins of her writing, Angela Slatter is very different from most authors. When she was a kid, she never did much writing, even though she used to change the endings of stories in her head if she did not like them.
Most of her stories came from her mother and hence she has always associated her voice with storytelling as she used to read to them every night before they slept.

When she got older, she started reading for herself, adding in religion, folk tales, history, and mythology, as she gathered a treasure chest of information.

Later on, she attended the University of Queensland, where she graduated with a degree in history and French, as she intended to go into academia and teach.

But she quickly realized she hated teaching and went to work in all manner of jobs. She worked as an administrative assistant, and a legal clerk among many other jobs, even as she kept scribbling stories in her notebooks.
At some point, she was called up by her cousin who invited her to Mapleton, where she spent the batter part of six months writing bad film scripts, worse poetry, a ton of short stories, and hideous novels that will never be published.

By the time Angela Slatter was 37, she knew she had to give writing a real go as she did not want to be 50 and have regrets.

She did a creative writing graduate diploma and while doing her master’s did a collection titled “Black-Winged Angels” that were mostly rewritten fairy tales.

Her first proper publication was in 2006 when Rosebud Wristlet at Lady Churchill accepted “The Juniper Tree.”However, her first ever published work was “The Little Match Girl,” which was published by Shimmer.
Still, it was not until 2014 that she gained a lot of notoriety with the publishing of “Black-Winged Angels.”

Angela Slatter’s novel “Vigil” is a work in which she constructs an intricate work full of Normals and Weyrds. They all coexist for the most part due to the efforts of DI Rhoda McIntyre, Verity, and Bela.
Verity Fassbinder is a private investigator who is a kickass half-blood who has phenomenal strength as her Weyrd gift. She is also known for her snarky and grumpy attitude.

She has a complicated and fraught relationship with Bela her boss and is close to Ziggi her helper and driver.

While investigating a case, she finds links to her dark family history, even as children go missing and on the market appears fine wine believed to be a product of the despair of kids on their deathbeds.

She tracks down the evil Winemaker and in the vicious fight that ensues, Verity rescues Lizzie and kills her adversary who she pushes into the oven. She soon gets more edge when a boatman gives her a magical knife.

While she has a lot of power, she has her hands full trying to find the son of Anders Baker named Donovan. That is not all as there is also a deadly golem, questionable dark angels, the killing of Sirens, a prophecy, and a missing infant to work on.
With so much on her plate, it is a wonder that she has time for any private life.

“Corpselight” by Angela Slatter is a work set in Brisbane, a city in which life is never simple for those who traverse two different worlds.

Verity has always been all about protecting her city but in the present, it is all about surveillance and taking care of the less exciting cases the Weyrd council has assigned to her.
She does not mind given that it is almost impossible to chase the criminals through Brisbane when you are heavily pregnant.

The insurance investigation she is working on does not seem to have anything out of the ordinary, even though it is marked “Unusual Happenstance.”

It is not a word typically used by Normals – as it covers everything from demonic possession, purpose hauntings, ectoplasmic home invasion, and angry genii.

However, Susan Beckett has had three reports in three months as her house keeps getting flooded with mud. While she initially claimed she only needed investigations and not any kind of help, things change when dry land drownings are reported.
The first clue Verity has takes her to Chinatown but she is stopped in her tracks when she goes into labor.

Angela Slatter’s novel “Restoration” asserts the truism that walking the thin line between two worlds has always been dangerous.

In this outing, Verity is facing the loss of everything she holds dear. She thought she could not have anyone worse than her perfectionist former boyfriend as a boss until she worked under a psychotic fallen angel.
V also has to deal with a forced career change and a violent and jealous employer. To get away from all the negativity, she sent her family away and quit her job at the Weyrd Council.

But now she finds herself having to play best friends with the kitsune assassin Joyce who spies for her boss.

Verity has been charged with finding two lost treasures, which is a particularly hard task only made worse by the fact that she also has to deal with Dusana Nadasy who wants to take her out.

Meanwhile, Inspector McIntyre keeps calling as the bodies of Normals who went missing decades earlier have been turning up and evidence indicates they were subjected to the magic of the Weyrd.
Despite her boss’ impatience, this is not something she is willing to walk away from.
