Amber Royer

Arlington, Texas

I am the co-author of There are Herbs in My Chocolate! and You Can Can with Herbs! I have been an avid gardener for over 18 years. I teach continuing education classes relating gardening, cooking and greener living for The University of Texas at Arlington. I also lecture for other groups/venues. I am a regular columnist for the Dave's Garden on-lin gardening community, and I blog about food/crafting and about tea. See more about this at www.dandylyonsgarden.com

I also write fiction and teach creative writing classes for teens and adults. For free writing resources and video clips of me teaching, visit www.amberroyer.com.

For my Etsy store, I make herbal crafts, both garden and kitchen aprons, and tea wallets. My store also features vintage brooches. I am a little bit addicted to their whimsical designs and sparkling charm, and I sell some of my collection to finance adding to the rest of it.
