About the Author

Ashley Amber grew up in Boston, Massachusetts and wrote her first picture book when she was 9 years old that she entered in a Reading Rainbow contest, earning a certificate from LeVar Burton.

Five years later, she rediscovered her love of writing at the age of 14. A+'s and AP English recommendations in school let Ashley know a career in writing was a possibility, but it wasn't until she was well into her 20's that she realized it was her destined career.

The Flip Side of Sad has been over 10 years in the making, an idea Ashley had at age 16. After finding the old story on her computer, she decided to rewrite and edit it, turning it into this novelette.

You can find more of Ashley's writing in anthologies, including her poetry debut in the LGBTQIA+ anthology Deviant: Chronicles of Pride, where Ashley tackles the struggles of asexuality in a poem titled "Ace of Hearts." Ashley also has upcoming pieces published in anthologies by Collective Tales Publishing and Twelve House Books.

When Ashley isn't writing, she's on YouTube making videos about her author journey, writer’s life and more.

Ashley is currently on the search for literary representation and traditional publishing for her LGBTQIA+ book series.
