Amber Garza has had a passion for the written word since she was a child making books out of notebook paper and staples. Her hobbies include reading and singing. Coffee and wine are her drinks of choice (not necessarily in that order). She writes while blaring music, and talks about her characters like they're real people. She lives with her husband and two kids in Folsom, California, which is also home to another Amber Garza.

“I’ve kissed so many girls, but nothing has ever felt like this. Nothing has ever felt so right and pure; so meant to be. I want to be the only person she ever kisses. I want to be the only person she ever loves like this.”

Marsha Hubler Amber, thanks for friending me on Goodreads. Although Amish fiction doesn't seem to be your forte, you might like my LOVES OF SNYDER COUNTY series. Also, I'm the author of the best-selling KEYSTONE STABLES SERIES for girls 10 and older. Have a great Thanksgiving.


DeAnna Kinney Oh, in that case, you're forgiven, haha. I look forward to reading it.

Ha! No Glimmer is just a short story- a very short teaser story that is a prequel to Dazzle.
