About Angel

Bio

Angel Patricks Amegbe is a Nigerian writer, visual storyteller, poet, wife, and mother. She is the author of The Days of Silence,(Masobe books 2021) a poignant coming-of-age story about identity, the unbreakable bonds of family, displacement, survival and the triumph of a woman’s spirit. 
She was born and raised in Kano, lived in Abuja, relocated to France, and now lives with her family in Eksaarde, a countryside village in the Flemish region of Belgium.
In 2021, she hosted her first Poetry and Tea’ event; a gathering of poetry lovers and creatives to recharge the soul, which has blossomed into a seasonal thing. Her strength lies in her ability to hold a safe space for others to express themselves creatively. With a background in Psychology, mental health, well-being, and identity are themes which are mostly explored in her works.
She is most likely writing another book, and will be found enjoying her special blend of tea.
 
 
 
A  simpler life
 
After relocating to Belgium, I was greeted by this new “world,” my new home. I needed time. I needed to sit with all the emotions and breathe. I needed courage to embrace this dream I didn’t even realise I was living. I was searching (I still am) for meaning and purpose, until I became aware of the things I am passionate about and the kind of life I want to live—a simple and intentional one. I realised I could create a safe space for anyone who is also searching. The name “Happyblacky and blog where I share my journey to a simpler & intentional life, was birthed in solitude. I hope it inspires you to find your own voice. 
 
I tell stories visually. 
 
When I’m not writing fiction or poetry, you’ll find me telling stories here. I started making videos during the lockdown in 2020, when I lacked inspiration to write. I enjoy it and I’m now stuck. 
 
 
What I love
 
Books, tea, my son, my family, friends, poetry, walks, love (not in that order).
