Amber Polo is best known for her Shapeshifters’ Library series, a light urban fantasy filled with dog-shifting librarians and book burning werewolves. Released (Book 1) Retrieved (Book 2), Recovered (Book 3) and Reprinted (Book 4).

Amber's love of books drew her into a career as a librarian. A greater love turned her into a writer. One day a plane flew past her office window and she turned her pen to her own airpark backyard and Heads in the Clouds was the result. Hearts in the Vortex, a Sedona paranormal romance, also is set in amazing Arizona.

  • Sloan's Witch on Sep. 15, 2011

    If you loved "Spell-Kissed" you have to read "Sloan's Witch." If you haven't, you'll want to read about the other delightful witchy sister as soon as you finish "SLoan's Witch."
  • Stories We Keep: A Yoga as Muse Anthology on Dec. 14, 2011

    Vital voices of five story keepers flow like a warm vinyasa revealing raw emotion, sometimes mystical, and always authentic. Five of the three pieces are excerpts from unpublished novels that hopefully will soon flame in full. Each writer came alive in her answers to questions posed. What tied her yoga practice to her writing and who she is in other roles, what brings her to the fire, and how she likes to cook her yams. I’ve always considered yams the perfect writers’ food, forming an easy snack or filling meal. Prepared ahead and then topped with sugary maple syrup, tangy ginger marmalade, sweet apricot jam, or a spicy salsa, they satisfy, nourish, and feed the senses, like this YAM anthology.
