My name is Amber Kuhlman and I wrote my first short story in middle school. Since that day, I’ve been unable to stop writing and have received great satisfaction in creating and writing novels for my generation. In 2008 I self published a book called Like No Tomorrow. Get Echo was inspired by the many teens and adults alike in our society struggling with drugs, eating disorders, and mental illnesses.
Thank you for considering my query. I hope that you will want to read Get Echo, and I would be glad to send you either an excerpt or the complete manuscript.
