Meet the Author

Angela Stanton was born gifted with the ability to captivate people with her words. A dynamic motivational speaker and author that inspires her audiences by her own life's challenges. Angela was born in Cheverly, M.D. and moved to Buffalo, N.Y. at the age of six weeks.
Angela attended more than thirteen different elementary and high schools before she finally ended up in an alternative school. After being expelled from alternative education she ended up in evening school , then after being expelled from there it was ruled that she could never attend another school in the state of New York.
Angela was sexually and mentally abused beginning at the tender age of five. She first ran away at the age of nine, then subsequently left home for good at the age of twelve. Angela has endured many of life’s heartaches ranging from promiscuity, drug’s, mental and physical abuse. She has also been arrested over twenty times.
Angela is now a married mother of five and a three time convicted felon, who now resides in Atlanta, G.A. with four of her children. She gave birth to her fifth child in prison handcuffed to a bed. She also lost her mother and grandmother to death during her incarceration.
Instead of succumbing to all of her misfortunes in life, she uses her experience in life’s lessons to help other’s over come. Her story is gripping and her concern is sincere. Along those lines, Angela is the author of Life Beyond These walls, and founder of Dont Ask Just Tell a non profit organization; her life is having a profound impact in halfway houses, youth detention centers and on the unsuspecting. Angela's client list includes satisfied customers from the corporate, civic, faith-based, correctional systems, and school sectors.


Dr. Alveda King, niece of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, and daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A. D. King and his wife Naomi Barber King. a published author, the most popular works being her best selling book "Sons of Thunder: The King Family Legacy."

    Great book. I agree this book merits more recognition, as well as, media coverage. I beg to differ in that Ms. Angela Stanton is obsessed with Phaedra Parks of The Real Housewives of Atlanta; on BravoTv, but rather, is very hurt with the outcome and justifiably so. Also, I applaud Ms. Stanton for her work with other victims and abused women in general.

    bad book

    She sounds very angry and still haven't gotten over the situation. She appears to be obsessed with Pheadra. She needs to move on with her life and live with the fact that she was used!

    Don't waste your time and/or hard earned money!!

    It's a shame to write this review but I feel strongly about spending money on something and it is not at all what the cover lead me to believe! Ms. Stanton could have used this opportunity (it is VERY difficult to get a book published) to tell her story of "rags to riches (in her heart and soul)" or "forgiveness and redemption" to help young African American girls, women and men. Instead she uses every opportunity to pull Ms. Phaedra Parks into her story (even when it is unrelated) and shame, accuse, indict, convict, defame.....it really does become vindictive and pointless to the story which she is trying to tell. The Introduction to her book is written with thought, class and admiration of Ms Stanton. Unfortunately, that was the only part that was!! I think an editor or a Ghost Writer (hopefully there wasn't one) could have made this book so inspirational......and use Ms. Parks as an example of "looks are deceiving" and to give credibility to Ms. Stanton's struggles. Instead, this book takes cheap shots and mentions situations and periods of time that are out of place with Ms. Stanton's life story.
