Amber Carew also writes contemporary erotic romance
as Opal Carew.
My previous professional life was as a computer software engineer. After graduating from the University of Waterloo with a Mathematics degree specializing in Computer Science, I worked for 15 years in the high tech. field before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Over the next few years, I continued to do the odd consulting contract to bring in extra dollars and to keep my knowledge up-to-date. Now, both my boys are teenagers and I consider myself a full-time writer.
My first reading passion was science fiction. My dad and older brother were avid SF fans and between them they'd collected hundreds of SF books, which I started reading before I hit my teens When I discovered "The Hobbit", I turned onto fantasy, too. (My husband is also a big SF fan. When we got married, we combined our book collections and we've been carting around 20 boxes of SF and fantasy books ever since.)
I picked up my first contemporary romance after having my first baby (I needed something to do during those middle-of-the-night feedings) I loved them! Think of my delight when I found that there were actually books that combined my reading passions. Romance set in the far future. Contemporary romance with a twist. Fantasy romance.
As Amber Carew, I write futuristic romances, fantasy
romances, contemporary romances with wizards, or genies,
or alternate realities, or alien abductions, or... pretty
well anything a little different. And sometimes, straight
contemporary romance. I write every length, from short
stories to long novels, but mostly I tend to mid-sized
novels and novellas.
