Born and raised in the Midwest, Amber Hendricks grew up reading everything she could get her hands on--including the morning cereal boxes. That passion melded into writing, and by the age of eleven, she was writing and binding her own "books." Amber has worn many hats in her career: army wife, mother, visual merchandiser, certified pharmacy technician, and most recently, childcare professional, but she has always circled back to her first love of telling stories. In addition to Superheroes Don't Babysit, Amber is the author of Sophie and Little Star and Extraordinary Ordinary Ella. She lives in Missouri with her husband and two children.
