Amber Fallon lives in a small town outside Boston, Massachusetts that she shares with her husband and their two dogs. A techie by day and a horror writer by night, Mrs. Fallon has also spent time as a bank manager, motivational speaker, produce wrangler, and apprentice butcher. Her obsessions with sushi, glittery nail polish, and sharp objects have made her a recognized figure around the community.
Amber’s publications include The Terminal, The Warblers, Daughters of Inanna, Sharkasaurus, So Long and Thanks for All the Brains, Daily Frights 2012, Women of the Living Dead, Zombie Tales, Here Be Clowns, Horror on the Installment Plan, Zombies For a Cure, Quick Bites of Flesh, Daily Frights 2013, Mirror, Mirror, Operation Ice Bat, Painted Mayhem, and Return to Deathlehem.
Amber is a supporter of the SCARES THAT CARE charitable orginization.
Scares That Care is a truly remarkable charity, a 501(c)(3) organization that aims to help people that really need it. While the group may be best known for their annual convention, Scares That Care Weekend, the good they do goes far beyond one event, or even one season.
Every year, they select three very worthy recipients: a woman fighting breast cancer, a sick child, and someone suffering from severe burns and give them as much as they can, from the money the charity collects from their convention, fund raisers like their $5 raffle events, crab fests, and every day donations. They fight real monsters like childhood illness, cancer, and horrific tragedies by helping victims cope with the financial struggle that can come along with major issues like the ones their charity recipients face.
In addition to those wonderful gifts, they also do toy and warm clothing drives for the winter, spreading warmth and generosity to even more people.
