Bumbling Luddite writer seeks online writerly networking. I dig humor, good poetry, really really bad poetry and nonfiction horror. Grad school & high school dropout with a B.A. in English from Cal Poly and a love of word play.
Unfamiliar with either band or literary villain “Pennywise” before I started this blog. What can I say, I was going for more of a Shakespearean Three Stooges nod. Think: Have you met Penny? She’s a real wise poet! My name’s Amber, an entirely different shade of brown.
I live on the Central Coast of Calfornia with my husband, son and new dog. Until recently, my stepson and dog resided with us as well.
I’ve been a barista, professional wedding crasher, waitress, backstage theatre grunt, horrid little sister, skeptic & soothsayer. When I was 4, I tried to reenact Richard Pryor material for my family; it didn’t go over well. That same year, I thought my uncle was Reggie Jackson’s secret identity. I was the first kid in my 6th grade class to grow a mustache; I was really hoping for boobs that year.
