Angela M. Sánchez

Angela (she/they) writes action-adventure stories soaked in magic that center on themes of found family and beating the odds. Inspiration comes from Angela’s own impossible odds of surviving chronic homelessness as a teen. In 2018, the Los Angeles Times featured their children’s book, Scruffy and the Egg, which tackles topics of single-parenthood and homelessness. Angela got their start in the industry serving as a Program Coordinator for LatinX in Animation. Now a two-time Finalist in ScreenCraft’s Animation Competition (2020 and 2022), Angela’s work has also placed as a semi-finalist in Creative Screenwriting’s animation competition. Angela was recently a staff writer for Disney Television Animation’s upcoming 6-11 series PRIMOS. Their freelance writing includes preschool shows such as AppleTV+’s acclaimed series STILLWATER, the CoComelon Story Time podcast, and over a dozen episodes for Moonbug’s GECKO’S GARAGE.
