Hey, I'm amber

An international bestselling author, writing mentor & book doula who believes in the healing power of the written word.

stories are medicine

There’s a common fear associated with sharing our truth. And it’s a fear I know well and continue to confront each time I bring a new creative endeavor to life.

It sounds something like this: If I put my truth out there, people may judge, shame, or push me away. I may lose connection, love, acceptance, and belonging.

In my 15+ years of writing & publishing the truth about my life, what I’ve come to discover is that the opposite is true.

True belonging, full acceptance, and whole-hearted connection comes through allowing yourself to be seen, heard, and known. In doing so, we allow others to see themselves in our stories and say, “I feel this way too.”

Our most honest, vulnerable writing is not only a healing salve for others, but perhaps even more importantly, the process of getting those words on the page is often the medicine we need too.
