Amber Mitchell graduated from the University of South Florida with a BA in Creative Writing. She likes crazy hair styles, reading, D&D, k-dramas, good puns and great food.

When she isn’t putting words on paper, she is using cardstock to craft 3D artwork or exploring new places with her husband Brian. They live a small town in Florida with their four cats where she is still waiting for a madman in a blue box to show up on her doorstep.

Garden of Thorns is her debut novel from Entangled Teen.

The second book in the trilogy will be coming out Fall 2018. Hopefully you like this one just as much but it lets you get a little bit of sleep. ;)(less)

Sometimes it's an overall idea to explore, other times it's just a bit of dialogue.

After that, I start to visualize a character or sometimes a certain scene and that's when I know I'm going to write the book. Bonus points if I can hear the main character's voice in my head.

For instance, with Garden of Thorns, I had the thought that when women dance in ballgowns, they look a little like flowers. From there, I thought about what it would be like to be one of these "flowers", why she would be there and before I knew it, this loud voice was in my head, talking to me and everything took off from there.(less)

I’ve got quite a few people asking me if GARDEN OF THORNS was going to have a sequel and while there was nothing official to announce, I’d simply say that I always imagined it as a trilogy.

Now it is official! That’s right, today it was announced that the amazing folks over at Entangled Teen will be publishing book 2 and book 3 in the GARDEN OF THORNS trilogy which means so much more time to ex...
