My name is Amber Crafton. I am creative, complex, and insightful. I have a lot of interests, hobbies, and “jobs.” Some of them are purely for the fun of it, and some of them also pay the bills. All of them are avenues for me to express the different facets of who I am. All of them help me understand and tell my story.
I have a passion for stories: books, movies, TV shows, fiction, non-fiction, oral history, or simply recounting the hilarity of life over coffee with a friend. Every story is important, and every story deserves expression. Especially the “real” stories. More than epic adventures or fairytale endings, the real stories that inspire and change us are found in the everyday working out of who we are and how we leave our mark on the world, on the tapestry of time.
Nanny. Editor. Web-design tinkerer. Reader. Singer. Traveler. Story-er. Mentor. Missionary. Coffee lover. I’m just a person like everyone else, living my everyday life all the way, telling my story, hoping that by doing so I will help others figure out how to tell theirs as well.
