I am very honored that my Alma Mater, King’s College (Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania), profiled me in a full page spread in its Fall 2009 alumni magazine, Pride. It’s on page 29 if the link does not automatically take you to it. Here’s an excerpt of what they had to say:
Mike Angley ’81 admits that before he entered King’s, he developed two passions that he has been fortunate to realize, careers in investigation and, more recently, as a published and award-winning fiction writer. As a student at Wyoming Valley West High School, located only a mile from the King’s campus, Mike developed a life plan that would involve him working for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and publishing a novel. While in his final year of study toward earning his degree in criminal justice and psychology, Mike learned that he would not be able to go directly from King’s into the FBI.
“Unless you earned either a law or accounting degree, you needed professional investigative experience before the FBI would consider you,” Angley said recently.
Mike was able to complete the Air Force ROTC program while at King’s. He was able to use that experience as what he thought would be a means to an end, joining the Air Force as a second lieutenant and possibly earning the practical experience required by the FBI in the Office of Special Investigations (OSI).
