Amber Wiser Thompson

Amber is an American writer who was raised in Damascus, Syria. She grew up reading fantasy novels and traveling back and forth between the Middle East and the United States, two worlds that at times seemed at odds with one another. Amber believes in the power of narrative to reflect who we are and who we would like to become. Her experience has taught her that we need only reach higher ground to see we are all connected. She lives in Washington, DC, with her husband, Shane, and two sons, Alex and James.
