Married nearly 20 years, mother to two teenage daughters and cancer survivor, and I still think writing is one of the hardest things I've ever done. Amberly Smith read her mom's romance novels, pausing every other page to have her mom read a unknown word to her, so she could memorize it. Back then, authors were mythical creatures and like unicorns, only existed in people's imaginations. It never occurred to her that she could be a writer. Amberly lives in the Northwest with her husband, two children, mother-in-law, and a cat named Cat. Their home has become a PC graveyard where games and gadgets are discarded for the latest shiny. She likes to read in bed, write in coffee shops, and cuddle while watching Netflix or Hulu. Amberly acknowledges that she has issues with being too succinct. Feel free to ask her questions about herself. She's not shy, just clueless what anyone would find particularly interesting about her life. After many years and a lot of hard work, Amberly is an author. Now, to find that unicorn. Connect with her on Facebook, Twitter or GoodReads.
