Hello! I’m Amber Skye Forbes, a novelist and poet. My first book is When Stars Die and is part of The Stars Trilogy. My first two poems published simultaneously in Sleeve are “Girls Must Be Dolls,” and “Curse,” both of which have been pulled from my collection currently titled Pretty Girl, Unravel Me. I’m currently 29 years old. At 19, my first short story, “Dead Poet’s Pendulum,” was published in The Oddville Press, a magazine that unfortunately folded. However, it can still be read here in Google’s lovely archives. I also had two parts published in Sorean: A Gothic Magazine, titled “Victoria’s Asylum of Maggots” in issues 4 and 5. I am also the founder of The Corner Club Press.
Being an author isn’t solely what I do. I am a personal trainer and have been so for about 4.5 years. I am also a doctor of physical therapy student.
I love to read young adult novels, binge on anime and manga, learn everything I can about nutrition and fitness, chill with my husband, mountain bike, dream about where I’ll live, and drink copious amounts of tea. In fact, everything I do is always with “a dash of tea.”
You can find out more about my life by following me on Twitter.
I hope you all enjoy what you find on my website! I try to blog often to keep things fresh.

Hi Amber! Thank you so much for following my blog!

Thank you for following my blog and commenting and everything! I too struggle with mental illness (especially when I was a teenager at high school) and believe so strongly in removing the stigma around it and expressing it through my writing! I can’t wait to read more of your blog!
Thanks for following! Your blog looks very interesting. I will definitely read more.
I nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award because of your personal way of writing!

Thank you so much! I’ll put it twice! 😀
Thanks for the follow, which is how I found you. I look forward to reading more here.
I love to dance and write too!
Yay! I love to meet others who dance too. The dancing community on WordPress is fairly small, I’ve noticed.
I know. I’ve yet to meet someone here that loves to dance and write as well until now. I hope you’ll continue to do both! Best wishes to you.

Just a note to thank you for following my blog. I am a singer and a writer — more emphasis on the latter as I grow older. I think there needs to be more people like you who acknowledge a mental illness and show that you have learned to live well with the demons. God Bless. Barbara

I’ve nominated you for the Liebster award (to add to your considerable collection :))! You can find details at http://1writeway.com/2013/06/28/just-call-me-ms-popularity/ If you already have the award and/or don’t want to participate, that is perfectly OK. I’m just sharing the love 🙂
Thank you so much!
This is a great “about me.” I look forward to reading the rest of the blog. 🙂
Thank you! I’m so glad you took some time out to peruse my blog. 😀
I found you through Tumblr. Which platform has worked best for you – Tumblr or WordPress?
In regards to my audience, being teens, I would say Tumblr. It’s much easier to connect with my audience there than on here, but WordPress has been great for garnering connections with other writers who can potentially help me with the marketing of my book.
Hi, Amber, I’m hoping you haven’t gotten this award yet, so I can give it to you 😉 It’s the Sisterhood of the World Blogging Award. Details at http://1writeway.com/2013/09/21/more-awards-more-mea-culpa/. Enjoy!
Thank you so much! I haven’t received this one yet. 😀
Cool! I have to admit, I think it’s my favorite 🙂
I really love you talent, Amber. I’d be happy for you to guest blog anytime.
Keep your pen busy!
I have great admiration for the fact that you deal openly with your mental illness. Many people are frightened to talk about such matters so it is refreshing to meet you!
I need to get back into blogging about it. I find myself straying from it when I’m stable, but if I want to consider myself an advocate, I know I need to post about it every so often.
Hi there Amber,
Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the blogosphere and for following. Your support is greatly appreciated, Looking forward to seeing more from you 🙂
Thank you so much! Feel free to offer suggestions, too, on what you yourself would like to read.
