Introducing Colonial Author Amber Lynn Perry

Happy Saturday, Friends! Today is a fun interview for me because I get to introduce you to
another Amber! That doesn't happen every day. ;) 
Amber Lynn Perry is a historical romance novelist, focusing on her favorite time in American history--the Revolutionary era. She received a Bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts from Portland State University and currently lives in Washington state with her husband and two daughters. She loves to hear from readers and you can contact her through her website, www.amberlynnperry.com or through her Facebook page, www.facebook.com/authoramberlynnperry.


Welcome Amber Lynn! We're so glad you could visit us today. Tell us about your recent series.
Hi!! Thank you so much for having me—I’m sincerely honored to be here! The first book in my series, Daughters of His Kingdom, So Fair a Lady, first released in 2014 and I’ve released a book a year since then. It centers around the revolutionary era in colonial Massachusetts—an incredible time in American history.


Where did the inspiration for your series come from?

I’ve always been interested in and inspired by the strength and courage of the people in the colonies during the tense and turbulent years before and during the revolution. My ancestors fought in many battles of the war, and I grew up with a deep appreciation for what they sacrificed. My hope is, that through my series, I can give readers not only a memorable romance story, but also bring to light things they may not know regarding that great time in America’s founding, and inspire them to a greater appreciation for the freedoms we have.

How does your faith and spirituality work in with your writing?


My faith is a foundation for everything I do, and everything that drives me and gives me hope in my life. This was also very much the case for many colonial Americans. They held the teachings of the Bible very close to their hearts and believed God would help them in their quest for freedom. So, naturally, in choosing to write about this time, it was instinctual to include a spiritual thread in the series. I feel so happy and grateful with how God has led me as I write, and I think the inspirational nature of the series is very tangible—a message for everyone, really. (At the very least, it’s a great message for me. ;) )


What is your favorite thing about writing historical romance?
I love being swept away into a different time! No cell phones, no internet, no “electronic pollution” so to speak. The clothes, the food, the way of speaking, their outlook on life—there are so many things to love about historical romance!! This era, for me, holds a particularly luring kind of magic, and has since I was young. It’s SO much fun to immerse myself in the sights, smells, textures tastes, and sounds of Sandwich, MA, 1775.


What are you working on next?
I’m preparing to write the fourth book in the series, SO PURE A HEART. Not sure of a release date yet, but I’m hoping for Spring/Early Summer of next year. This particular story will feature a hero that readers might remember from book two, and the women he once loved…and lost. Super duper excited to share it with readers!!


Very interesting. Looks like you have some great stuff going on. Thank you so much for being with us! 

Readers, Amber has generously offered an ebook copy of HER ENTIRE SERIES as a giveaway! So be sure to leave her a comment to get your name in the hat. You'll also get an extra entry for sharing this post, so be sure to mention that as well. ;)
