Amber Manning

Amber Manning is an independent, working mother of 3 rowdy and handsome boys. She has a "no-nonsense, never quit, make no excuses" attitude and tries her best to stay positive throughout life! Her main purpose in this world, she believes, is to raise her boys properly, help others and make a difference!

She loves "the old school" way of living and believes that if more people would have that attitude that the world would be a better place! Born and raised in Texas, she is 100% Texan in heart! She loves her family, water sports, outdoors, reading, camping, bonfires, good music turned up loud and can sometimes be eccentric. She knows it and her response is, "being normal is boring!" She tries to always give the gift of a smile because she says she hopes it "brightens someone's day!" She believes every single person has struggles and believes the philosophy "you should never look down on someone, unless it's to help them up!" Her favorite story is the "Starfish Story" (you made a difference to that one).

Children are her favorite people in the world and have been since she was a child! They hold the most special place in her heart. She has always loved to write and has wanted to be an elementary or middle school teacher since she was 7 years old. In her book, she gets to "teach" children about Texas!
