Author Angela Golden Bryan reads from her new children’s book, “James and the Fireburn,” at the Queen Louise Home for Children on St. Croix.

Author Angela Golden Bryan paid a visit to the Queen Louise Home for Children on St. Croix last month to donate a check for $2,000 and give a sneak preview of her children’s book.

Bryan is an author, actress, international speaker, ambassador for Gender Equality and Women’s Chair for the United Nations Association of America in Broward County, Fla., and founder and CEO of the Fireburn Foundation, Inc. She began her visit with a dramatic reading from her soon-to-be-published children’s book, “James and the Fireburn,” presented to the first audience, outside of Bryan’s family, to hear the new book.

Following the reading, Bran presented a $2,000 check to Susan Torres, director at the Queen Louise Home, on behalf of the Fireburn Foundation. Portions of the donation were received from Bryan’s relaunch of her book ‘Fireburn: The Screenplay,” which recently reached #1 on the Amazon Best Seller list in the category of screenplays.

“In 1975, my mother brought home the cutest little 3-year-old girl in the world. The little girl, Tina, became my foster sister, and then my goddaughter, and to this day, we have a very close relationship,” said Bryan. “This beautiful relationship, along with the much-needed services that the Queen Louise Home provides, has inspired me to give donations to them for decades now. When I created my nonprofit, the Fireburn Foundation, it was with the desire to invite others to join along and serve those in need.”
