I am a happily married, proud, southern girl. I love Jesus but I cuss a bit and by a bit I mean like a sailor. I am a mom to two newly turned teenagers and stepmom to a newly turned young adult. I am also a writer under the pen name Amber Leigh. Lots of loves including but not limited to, my husband, my kids, my pet babies, my job, television, movies, reading, writing, shoes, social media, and of course coffee. I feel things deeply, harshly, and intensely but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I have a daughter who was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2 1/2, she is 15 now. We have our struggles but she is by far my easiest child. She blows my mind each and every day and I thank God for her. She is my angel on Earth.
My 14 year old was diagnosed with ADHD in 4th grade and has recently been diagnosed with anxiety. Teens these days have so much more going on than I remember in my middle school and high school days. She is my mini me through and through which is a good thing and also maybe a bad thing to her since I can read her like a book. She is my best friend and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m married to an amazing man. I can’t say enough about him. He is my best friend and my other half. I’m truly blessed that God sent this man to me. He always puts me and the family before himself even when I tell him not to. I don’t have to ask for anything because he beats me to it 9 times out of 10. I look forward to each new day because he is in it.
I started writing about 4 years ago and it’s a passion that will not fade. Not that I would want it to. I published my first book and it snowballed from there. My books are contemporary romance because I like writing characters that are relatable but with a fairy tale spin. My books do tend to have explicit content, you’ve been warned.
I love meeting and chatting with readers, fellow writers, moms, wives, etc. Every woman needs her tribe.
