Debut Book | This is Not a Love Song

As heard on Snap Judgement & Love+Radio. This is Not a Love Song is a memoir intertwining two tales: the raw, personal soul- searching of a young woman with a 'stranger than fiction' psychological thriller. 


When Amber started working in the world of magazines, she never dreamt their focus would turn so close to home, when her best friend falls for (and marries) a Danish prince. In the wake of a fairy tale, royal wedding she finds herself surrounded by a sea of perfumed sharks. 


Wondering who to trust, she falls for the charms of a cruel conman. When Mr Wrong unleashes a barrage of bad publicity, it looks like there's no salvaging her reputation. A lifeline is thrown when she's offered a role on Survivor. On the island, she finds her inner hero, and yet another dangerous romance.


Using manifesting techniques, she secures her "dream job" in radio. But the bubbly voice she portrays on air is just a sham—off-air, Amber sinks into depression while juggling a violent boyfriend and a toxic work culture. When a "Gotcha" call presents a wholesome love story, Amber finds herself caught up in another fairy tale, but all is not as it seems. 


When the appalling truth is uncovered, Amber is forced to take a stark look at the part she's played in inviting so many smiling assassins to take centre stage in her life. She sees how the power of your thoughts, and manifesting, can bring both the 'dream' but also a 'nightmare'.
