Editor in Chief | Amber Harvey | she/they

Hello! I'm Amber Harvey and I love reading mysteries and horror/supernatural novels, flash fiction, and nonfiction (creative and memoir!). I recently re-read Rebel Without a Crew and it's still one of my favorite reads. I am also a screenwriter and filmmaker so when I am not reading or writing I'm usually watching movies or working on a new project! I also love music, especially classic rock, and I love seeing live music.
