Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees and diving for scallopswhen 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 sermonsan 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 and is passionate about the deep ties between spirituality and sexuality. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write 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 loves chatting with readers and other authors on social media!
