Catawba Valley Community College’s “The Write Stuff” Creative Writing Club will host a campus visit by author Angela Pisel on Wed., Jan. 25, at noon in the East Wing Auditorium located on the Main Campus on US Hwy. 70 SE in Hickory.
“With Love from the Inside” is Pisel’s first novel. The North Carolina resident has worked as a therapist and life coach, mentoring women through various stages of their lives.
Her novel’s main character is on death row for the murder of her infant son, and all appeals have been exhausted. Her execution date has been set and she wants her now-married daughter, Sophie, to know the truth about what really happened to her baby brother William.
“I decided to write the book because of my obsession with TV trials,” explained Pisel. “I began researching women on death row, read their stories, and wondered about their children. I tried figuring out why they ended up on death row. I wanted to explore the entire issue and determine what went wrong in their lives.”
Pisel volunteers with an organization in North Carolina www.forgivenministry.org that seeks to break the cycle of recidivism by promoting healthy relationships between children and their incarcerated parent.
Community members are invited to attend Pisel’s presentation. If you need accommodations, please contact Wanda Horvath at CVCC, 828-327-7000 ext. 4222, email@example.com.
