I'm Amber Herbert, a queer author/poet living in Colorado Springs. I hold a BA in English Literature and have worked as a freelance editor since 2018. I'm drawn to immersive fiction, compelling characters, and poignant prose. Lipstick Covered Magnet is my first novel.

When I'm not writing or reading, I enjoy baking, playing board games, and watching and critiquing TV and film.
