Bedford's novel, Angela 1: Starting Over, addresses relevant teen issues such as bullying, divorce and being labeled the new kid in school. Main character, Angela, along with her closest friends, exposes a conspiracy that affects an entire district.

    ALEDO, TX, February 09, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Bedford, author of the recently released Angela 1: Starting Over, addresses common issues that teenagers face daily: divorce, separations of family and friends and bullying. Add the violation of rights within a system intended to protect students, and it's too much for main character Angela Fournier. Angela, with the help of her friends, forges an investigation of an entire school district and puts an end to the injustice that they discover. Bedford's book has an entertaining storyline yet delivers an important message for pre-teens and teens.

"At the restaurant table, during a meal, three Angela story lines came to me all at once. I jotted down the main plot ideas for each book and the specific story arc covering all three. Many of the characters were already in my mind and I noted 'foil' characters to complement them. I then wrote out a rough outline for each book, and this was all during lunch." ... David A. Bedford. Angela 1: Starting Over, is the first of a three part series, second book is complete and the third installment is underway.

Bedford grew up in Argentina and attended Texas Tech University and received a BA and MA. He also attended The University of Texas at Austin, and earned a PhD in foreign language education. He's prepared missionaries for language study and served as a consultant for the Southern Baptist Foreign Mission Board and was the Language Lab Director and Adjunct Professor of Spanish at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.
