Amber's writing career started in 2002 when she became a freelance reporter for a local newspaper. As her experience grew, she began writing for magazines and local businesses. Over the years, her career path has shifted in several directions – construction at a non-profit children’s camp, farming and more – but writing remained a central part of her life.
Today, she enjoys the life of a full-time freelance writer. She blogs and writes copy, and her work has appeared all over the web and in print media. She regularly contributes to the Farmers’ Almanac and her work is soon to be featured in Pat Stone’s award-winning GreenPrints magazine.
Amber’s diverse background lets her write about a variety of topics: construction, architecture, gardening, agronomy, the environment and more. She has also studied social psychology, which gives her deep insights into the consumer decision-making process. With this knowledge, she creates compelling, provocative content that entices readers as it educates them. Amber also enjoys writing the occasional hard-hitting news piece, research-driven white paper or fact-packed infographic outline. The AP Stylebook is her constant companion, but she is also familiar with Chicago and MLA styles.
Writing, renovating, organic gardening and farming – those things have occupied the majority of Amber’s time, but she also has a few notable interests that she loves to cover. She is an award-winning fine art photographer and she gets involved in an endless variety of crafts and DIY projects. From quilts to fine wine to furniture, if you can make it at home, Amber has probably tried – or at least considered it!
You’ll find that as a writer, Amber is easygoing. She works hard to find the voice and style that matches each client and she thoroughly enjoys collaborative projects. If you like to toss around ideas or pass a draft back and forth until it’s been revised to perfection, Amber is the writer for you!
