I'm Amber, but my friends call me Tiff, short for Tiffany, my first name.
I am in my mid-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 offer virtual assistance.
to the gentle nudging of a fellow author -- Tracie
Peterson -- in 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. Check out my books page for further details.
Another facet of my life involves web design. 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 has since branched into doing web sites for a variety
of clients, including: authors J.M.
Hochstetler, Trish Perry, Kathy
Susan Page Davis,
Martha Rogers, and Jill
Elizabeth Nelson, actor William
Shockley (the voice of AT&T and Toyota) and many others through Eagle Designs. Feel free to visit and see our other clients.
I've included a picture of our "puppy", born July 4, 2007.
Her name is Roxie. She's half Australian shepherd, half Flat-Haired Retriever. We've since acquired another Australian shepherd (Aussie) named Bronco. Will get a picture of the 2 of them as soon as I can get them to pose together.
I love to
hear from those who visit this site. You can find my mailing address or leave your email message through
the Contact page. Thanks for stopping by!

A Christian Woman'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 Christian', 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 Christian' 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 Christian' 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 Christian' 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 Christian' 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 Christian' 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 Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner who received God's good grace, somehow!
