Amy Nicole Tangel


Amy Nicole Tangel is a journalist, author and founder of, The Human Interest Story. In 2017 she published children’s book, Buster’s Backpack Adventure and in 2020 she released memoir, Hello Sunshine. As a freelance journalist, she was often in search for news outlets available to her who had room for human interest stories. She has a passion for telling stories of inspiring and extraordinary people and had a vision to open her own door and share the opportunity with other fellow journalists who had stories to tell. With the ever changing times of what is considered thought provoking news and being limited by hyper-local proximities, The Human Interest Story was created.
