Hello! I’m Amber Skye Forbes, a novelist and poet. My first book is When Stars Die and is part of The Stars Trilogy. It was published by AEC Stellar Publishing Inc., in 2013, but is now represented by Gnome on pig Productions. 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 27 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, nutrition coach, and strength coach and have been so for about 2 years. In fact, this is what I primarily do now, and I am back in school with the aim of getting in a doctor of physical therapy program.

I love to read young adult novels, binge on anime and manga, learn everything I can about nutrition and fitness, chill with my husband, wear different shoes at the gym every day, workout, do some kickboxing, and dream about living in New York.

This was my favorite role in my dance school’s recital: Wind. My fiancé took this picture. This is me sitting on the thrones of Lucy, Peter, Edmund, and Susan.

    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!

    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

    Thanks for following my blog. Congrats on the acceptance of your first book! I’ll keep watch for it and would love to review it. My heart is also with those young people who struggle with darker issues and in offering hope.

      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.

      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.
