Hey, I'm A.L. !

Dallas, Texas


Dr. A.L. Smith read her first full-length novel (The Boxcar Children, by Gertrude Chandler Warner) in the third grade and it spawned her passion for reading. According to Dr. Smith, the hallmark of a great story is the resounding presence of a character that transcends the final pages of a book.
Dr. Smith is a native Louisianan, Major in the Army Reserves, and a practicing Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. Her doctoral research study was selected for publication in the 2016 edition of the Journal of Gastroenterology Nursing issue 39 volume 2. In 2010, she participated in humanitarian relief efforts during the devastating earthquake in Haiti and provided anesthesia services to a countless number of victims, many of whom were children. This experience would have a profound impact on her views concerning socioeconomic disparities here in the U.S. and countries abroad. Her second novel, Behind Closed Doors 2: Dana’s Story, was heavily influenced by her experience in Haiti.

 Greetings from Dallas, Texas!!!

I'm an Amazon best selling author. I began writing my first book over 10 yrs ago and it was published in 2015. The majority of the time was spent writing the final chapter; because as it turns out, life and the observation of life had to happen in order for me to finish.
The finished product (The Behind Closed Doors Series) is my attempt to address many of the issues that we currently face in the urban community. Like most urban fiction novels, the perils of urban living (drugs, prostitution, child abuse/neglect crime, police brutality, Black on Black crime) are discussed at length; however, my goal is to explore the potential causes and effects.

Jacque Reid goes Inside Her Story with activist and author Angela Smith about the trafficking of young girls in America. Her book, Behind Closed Doors 2, tells the true story of a young girl who was sold into sex trafficking by her mother.
