Meet the Author

I’m a writer. I’ve been writing off and on most of my life but decided I wanted “to be a writer” by 12 years old. Ever since then I’ve been writing, taking writing classes (I got a bachelors in English at UNH), and steadily improving.


A couple years ago, my friend Kris and I started passing a story back and forth as a writing exercise. That story became our novel, The Trident of Merrow. You can find out more about that at our page, Tavern Tales from the Laughing Maggie. It’s out now in paperback and on Kindle. We’re planning on a few sequels eventually.


In the meantime, I’m still working on my own stuff. I have a novel, Negatives, still pre-publication, and I’m working on its sequel, Apertures (which has nothing to do with Portal, by the way). I also have some short stories and novellas I may release at least on the Kindle as inexpensive downloads. Stay tuned for that.


In the meantime, this space is just for me to go on mostly about my own writing (I’ll try and keep it to that) as opposed to my projects with Kris.


I mostly write and read young adult fiction and have a fascination with the supernatural, the occult, dystopias and post-apocalyptic worlds. I love romance but not romance novels. My vampires don’t sparkle, my boys are bad and angsty and golden-hearted and my heroines kick ass. My bookshelves are aching to the point where a Kindle is starting to look like a good idea.


I told a friend once when he asked what demographic my writing aims for: “I don’t aim, I just land.”


Besides Tavern Tales…, I’m on Twitter @talesofaquan, and on Goodreads and on Google+ (under the name Amber Sutton, my married name) so feel free to “encircle” me on the latter, or whatever we’re calling it now ;). I also recently opened a page on Diaspora so search for me there as well.

    Short and a bit stupid.

    I know that some are probably going to throw me in with the group that loves happy endings only but I think the book could have been longer. Also some things should have been made clearer.

    Waste

    Agreed it was short and okay but i didn't like the concept. It kind of made me think of it as a ridiculous story with no meaning.
