Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees and diving for scallops...when she could pull herself away from a book. As a child, she hid her Nancy Drew novels inside the church bulletin and read mysteries during sermons--an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days.
Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write vampire romance, but it is perfectly natural to her, because the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire. She lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco and spends way too much time on Twitter @AmberBelldene if you want to chat.
Amber writes scorching, smart paranormal romance and quirky-hot contemporary romance--all of which draw on her interests in spirituality and sexuality. Visit her website to sign up for her newsletter for info about her latest releases.
