about amber

Amber Smith grew up in Buffalo, New York and now lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her two dogs. Fueled by a lifelong passion for the arts, story, and creative expression, Amber graduated from art school with a BFA in Painting and went on to earn her master’s degree in Art History. When she’s not writing she’s usually reading, but can also be found in her studio making art or freelancing as an art consultant. She has also written on the topics of art history and modern and contemporary art.

Her debut novel, The Way I Used to Be was a New York Times bestseller. Look out for her next book, The Last to Let Go, which will be released in the spring of 2018 from Simon & Schuster’s Margaret K. McElderry Books.
