Light Hearted ep 112 – Children’s book author Angeli Perrow

Angeli Perrow

Angeli Perrow was born in Rockland on the Maine coast. Her grandfather was a lobsterman and her uncle fished the Grand Banks. As a child, Angeli delighted in exploring the beach with her grandmother, collecting shells and sea glass. She also started writing poems and stories when she was a child.

Angeli taught elementary school for 30 years before retiring two years ago. Maine’s maritime history has provided material for much of her writing, including four of her children’s books, Captain’s Castaway, Lighthouse Dog to the Rescue, Sirius the Dog Star, and Love from the Sky, as well as a coloring book. The “Maine Lighthouses Coloring Book” was published in a brand new second edition in March 2021.

Her other picture books include Dogsled Dreamer and Many Hands, which was a 2010 Lupine Award winner. Angeli’s love for mystery stories inspired her to write the Key Mystery Series for children 8 to 12, starting with The Lightkeeper’s Key and The Whispering Key. There are now eight volumes in the series. She has also written a trilogy of horse adventure books for young teens, Celtic Thunder, Celtic Tide,and Celtic Legend.

Angeli lives in Hampden, Maine, with her husband and their dog Lily. She is the mother of two and grandmother of three. Her other interests include hiking, kayaking, cross-country skiing, reading, painting, gardening, Irish dancing, and Celtic music.
