Amber Daulton

Biography

My mind is a wonderland of romance, laughter and really awesome ways of kicking a guy when he’s down. Writing is my passion and I probably wouldn’t be too sane without it. After all, what’s a girl to do when there are people jabbering away in her head and there’s no way to shut them up? Write! That’s the only answer I’ve found that works.
I live in the lovely foothills of North Carolina with my supportive husband, Greg, and five fuzzy, little ninjas (our kitties)! The first thing most people notice about me is my quick, sarcastic wit. As a fan of contemporary, paranormal and historical novels alike, I just can't get enough of sassy heroines and brooding heroes. Writing romance takes up most of my time, aside from my day job in the retail industry. Luckily, my husband doesn't mind cooking most nights. I also enjoy hiking, gardening, painting, watching movies and scrap-booking when a serious case of writer's block bogs me down.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I read my first romance novel at twelve years old. 'True Blue' by Ingrid Weaver has always held a special place in my heart. It's a contemporary romantic suspense with a motorcycle-riding, bad boy hero and a wallflower, schoolteacher heroine. After reading this book, I decided I wanted to write my own stories about two people finding adventure and falling in love. And so I did. I finished my first novel within six months and I've revised that book several times over the years.
Now, over a decade later, I have one novella published and a second in the editing process.
I credit 'True Blue' with opening the door into modern romantic literature for me. Without it, I may not be writing today.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in a small town in western North Carolina. I remember being one of few kids in my class that actually liked to read and write. By the time I was 12, I was reading college textbooks on history (for my novels) and was totally bored in school. Yes, I was a total nerd! I always wrote about faraway lands and places that I wanted visit, places I wanted to escape to. I was desperate to get out of my small-town, simple-minded environment. Even though I still live here (different town, same county), I learned that intelligence is all around me. I just had to find it. I still write books about different areas because I love learning about different cultures, not because of my desire to escape.
