Writing Words With the Tips of My Toes

About the Author

Photographed by Anette Abernathy

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 25 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 currently work at Evans Fitness Club Express as a Fitness Consultant and Personal Training Intern. Right now I am developing my fitness business called TDW Lifestyle that I plan to launch this summer. I’m also a ballet dancer, ballet having been a partial contributor of my dream to be a fitness professional.

I love to read young adult novels, binge on anime and manga, hang out with my gorgeous cat, chill with my amazing fiance, drool over clothes, make-up, and jewelry; and I’m a huge health foodist, specializing in eating fruit all day, every day.

You can find out more about my life by following me on Instagram.

I hope you all enjoy what you find on my website! I try to blog often to keep things fresh.

    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!

      Yay! I love to meet others who dance too. The dancing community on WordPress is fairly small, I’ve noticed.

      • aspiringwriter22
        May 6, 2013

        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

    Hi Amber,

    I found you through Tumblr. Which platform has worked best for you – Tumblr or WordPress?

    Best,
    Ana

    • amberskyef
      August 28, 2013

      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 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!

    • amberskyef
      February 25, 2014

      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.
