Ife Oshun is the author of the Angelica Brown series, and its upcoming spinoff series To Protect and Serve. Raised on a strict diet of music and sci-fi/fantasy, she attended the Rhode Island School of Design and Brown University. There, while working in local music promotion and as a radio personality for WBRU, she began a career in music journalism. Her writing efforts later expanded to the stage and, eventually, writing and producing for TV.

While interning on Star Trek: Voyager, Oshun had an idea for a TV show, but it took six years to realize Angel Brown, Sawyer Creed and Justin McCarthy wanted to live in the world of books. Hence, the Angelica Brown Series was born.

"The series," Oshun says, " is an exploration of music, angels and ordinary immortals who, like everyone, are challenged in love, happiness and the pursuit of their dreams. I hope you grow to love these characters, too."
