I'm Amber, but my friends call me Tiff, short for Tiffany, my first name.
I am in my late-30's, married to the love of my life since July 2007, have a daughter and a son, and live in
Colorado. Here, I am content to do what I love—write, speak, and help others live better and look younger through partnering with Nerium International.
My Wedding Fairytale
Our First Baby Announcement
to the gentle nudging of a fellow author -- Tracie
Peterson -- in early 2002, I
joined the American
Christian Fiction Writers and wouldn't be published today without them. For those of you who are also fiction writers looking for a wonderful
support group, check
them out! My
very first book, Promises, Promises, sold in December 2006 and released in February
2008. I've been going steady ever since. Visit my books page for further details.
Though I closed the doors in 2014 on my 15-year service in the graphic and web design industry, it blessed me tremendously and taught me so much. I got involved
with it in 1997, when I was asked to take over running the official
web site for the television series Dr.
Quinn, Medicine Woman. That eventually led to being offered the job of running world-renowned actress
official fan site. That branched into doing web sites for a variety
of clients, including: authors J.M.
Hochstetler, Tracey Bateman, Patty Smith Hall, Trish Perry, Susan Page Davis,
Martha Rogers, and Jill
Elizabeth Nelson, as well as actor William
Shockley (the voice of AT&T and Toyota) and many others through Eagle Designs. That business has since become Eagle Enterprises, where my husband and I minister to others through our written words, speaking, and our service in the skin care industry.
I've included a picture of our canine family members. Roxie, on the left, was born July 4, 2007.
She's Australian shepherd mixed with Flat-Haired Retriever. She joined our family in October 2007. We also added Timber (born August 1, 2013) in August 2014. He's an Australian cattle dog mixed with Corgi.
There have been rumors of adding some fish to this crazy mix, but for now, we'll settle for our aquarium screensaver on our flat-screen TV. :)
I love to

A Woman After God's Heart
'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ that a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'
When I say that 'I am a Christ-follower', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living.
I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven.'
When I say 'I am a Christ-follower' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.
When I say 'I am a Christ-follower' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.
When I say 'I am a Christ-follower' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.
When I say 'I am a Christ-follower' I'm not claiming to be perfect.
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.
When I say 'I am a Christ-follower' I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.
When I say 'I am a Christ-follower' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!
