She dreamed of becoming a professional author and seeing her name on a bookshelf alongside her literary heroes, Joyce, Wilde & Shakespeare.
Angelique very sadly died from bowel cancer before she could realise her ambitions. She was 31 years old.
In the months before her death she wrote a collection of life-affirming wishes which capture her positive outlook on life and her sometimes acerbic wit. These wishes have been published posthumously by her family in a book called – ‘I Wish That Wishing Made It So.’
Angelique’s story became the subject of Janine Hosking’s award winning documentary 35 Letters.
