Angela J Williams, PhD, is a writer, illustrator and story teller from Wollongong, Australia. 

A writer, thinker and yeller, Angela Williams is mildly notorious for seeing problems and pointing them out. She’s tussled with Fred Nile in the Sydney Morning Herald, taken academia to task in the Guardian’s Anonymous Academic, gone to Crikey about the treatment of mentally ill women in prison, and most recently blown the whistle on dangerous risks in her (former) charity workplace. Angela does one thing really well – find problems and yell about them.

Right now, Angela is working on a webcomic called To Be Continued about lessons learned during her most recent suicidal intent infestation in late 2017 and early 2018. These comics are hand-drawn and digitally painted in a watercolour style. These comics poke at media and cultural representations of suicide and mental illness, exposing angles informed by a unique blend of lived experience, academic training and a recent dose of Electroconvulsive Therapy. 

Angela's first book is Snakes and Ladders, currently being considered by Affirm Press in Melbourne. 

Angela Williams just couldn’t catch a break. She lost her father to alcohol as a child and was then taken hostage by her mother’s madness. Programmed with scripts of heroin addiction, homelessness and unhealthy sex work, Angela found herself with the almost inevitable criminal record in 1996 and then decided to get back on track.

Fast forward to 2010. Angela has found her path. She’s got her son back in her care, is graduating from Uni with all the honours and looks set for marvellous success. Then she steps off the wrong gutter, gets taken out by a postie bike and ends up back in the slammer. She’d forgotten to chase up some paper work after the first ride on the merry-go-round of the NSW Justice System. Society had to see justice being served.

Angela also has her 1K badge in the Facebook group Dad Jokes Australia. This provides Angela with no end of amusement.
