Amber Garcia

Amber is a mother of two, a creator of art, and loves the outdoors. Watching a full moon rise is one of her favorites. Originally from Michigan, she moved to Tucson, Arizona in 2007 for the warmer weather.


Having never been to the desert, she immediately fell in love with the mountainous landscape and the saguaro cacti.  Amber enjoys hiking and exploring around Arizona.


It was seeing all the saguaro cacti on those hikes that provided the inspiration for bed time stories for her children. The Thirsty Saguaro is her first. She hopes that you find as much enjoyment reading these quirky stories to your loved as she does.
