Angela is donating 10% of all book proceeds from Urban Faery: A Modern Fantasy to the Surfrider Foundation, an organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches, and she encourages her readers to take action and do the same.
“When I frist moved to Los Angeles back in 2000, I was very fortunate to be able to observe Southern California’s local surf culture firsthand. I greatly admired and very much envied that extraordinary connection with nature, and Malibu’s allegedly impermeable brotherhood of local surfers set the tone for the writing of this book.”
Since its inception in 1984, the Surfrider Foundation has evolved into one of the largest non-profit grassroots organizations with a volunteer-activist network dedicated to its mission to protect and enjoy the world’s oceans, waves and beaches.
Today, the Surfrider Foundation is measurably stronger, with more force and movement than ever before. It has 84 chapters, including 30 high school and college clubs, and more than 250,000 supporters, volunteers and activists fighting 90 active campaigns around the country.
Surfrider LA protects 31 miles of coastline from County Line to Ballona Creek and Inland.
Thirty years ago a group of surfers from Malibu, California, were concerned about the health risks associated with environmental threats posed by escalating coastal development at their favorite surf spot. They took action. Not even they could have envisioned the history they were making when they succeeded in protecting their beloved surf spot.
