About the Author

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.

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.

  1. Congratulations on your book being selected for publication through AEC Stellar Publishing! That’s great Amber! I wish you the very best of luck in your writing career!
    Yours truly,
    Briana Vedsted

  2. 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!

      1. 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.

  3. 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

  6. 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.

    1. 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.

    1. 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.
