Hi! I'm from southern California and have lived here all my life. I have been reading and writing stories since I can remember. I loved book projects at school and this inspired me to continue making them at home. My early stories were fun and fanciful and full of fairies. As I grew older, more serious subjects began to steal my interest. TORN reflects the time period between high school and my early twenties. TORN is a Young Adult novel written for older teens (17+) and deals with high school students who are coping with issues of sexual orientation and finding themselves. I am currently working on a sequel to TORN.

Torn by Amber Lehman
"Torn by Amber Lehman is an important book. She very deftly peels back the layers between desire and love, the vulnerability of sharing with someone, the personal intimacy of sexual choice.
This book spoke to me in so many ways. Beautifully drawn c..." Read more of this review »

Harper Lee
“First of all," he said, "if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view--until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.”
Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

Mariana Paixão Yeah, there are some ugly things, but the beautiful ones are REALLY gorgeous. Especially the beaches! I live in the northeast of Brazil, so it's always very hot and normally the sun is very bright!
Oh, so you have your own publishing company, that's very nice! Thank you so much for willing me to send your book! I'm very glad! I'll send you a private message, then. It'll be a honor to spread about you and your book here in Brazil! :)

message 23: by Mariana

Mariana Paixão So nice! Unfortunately I'm from Brazil, so it's VERY hard to find english books here. And it's very expensive, too. What's your publisher? Do you think they want (or can have) a partnership with a brazilian blogger? I review books in my blog, most of them YA books, and I really want to read yours. :)

Mariana Paixão Hi Amber, great to be friends with you here!
I saw your book and it seems very interesting!
Is it already published?
