About Amber Fraley

Amber Fraley is your typical Gen Xer suburban Kansas wife and mom of one who grew up a book nerd in a dysfunctional family and now writes about those experiences as hilarious therapy. She’s the author of the darkly humorous essay collection From Kansas, Not Dorothy, and the viral essay Gen X Will Not Go Quietly, as well as numerous human interest articles in regional magazines. Growing up in Lawrence and Wichita, Amber spent her formative years with her face in a book or at the mall with her friends. She loves the Kansas with all her heart, is frequently awkward in public, and desperately wishes to see a tornado and live to tell the tale. 

Amber's first novel, The Bug Diary, will be released in October of 2021. Find her on Goodreads!
