About author

Amber King shared her childhood home in rural Pennsylvania with an unruly herd of chickens, turkeys, cockatiels, dogs, and more cats than she could count. Today, her home in Honolulu, Hawaii is run by a rescued Rhodesian Ridgeback named Copper and his sassy sister, Bailey. Rescuing Copper and Bailey inspired Amber to use her B.A. in professional writing to write about topics that truly matter to her. Whether they’re big, small, furry, or feathery, Amber loves all animals and uses her writing to share ideas, stories, and knowledge about animal-related topics. She will eventually return to her rural roots and fill a farm with as many furry friends as her husband will allow, but for now, she’s enjoying life in Hawaii with her dogs and working as a freelance writer. Contact her by emailing aking@homelifemedia.com.
