Amber Jerome~Norrgard was first published in her hometown's paper at the age of seventeen. Since then, she's used writing as a free form of therapy to celebrate the best parts of her life, and to work through the rough experiences. She is author of the bestselling collection of poetry, "The Color of Dawn," as well as "4 a.m.," a poetry and essay collection, and “Wanting” a collection of short erotic stories. She is co-creator, and co-host of “TweepNation with Amber and Dionne,” a weekly podcast loosely related to Twitter and Independent Authors. She is currently working on her psychology degree, and lives in Dallas, Texas, with her family.
