Author Biography

Amber Schunk-Clubb was born and raised in Colorado where she found her love for writing as a young child. From poetry to short stories she always found unique ways to put her imagination into words. What started out as something to do in her free time quickly became a passion as she got older. Going into high school where she had more options, she took creative writing courses and specialty classes to help her with her passion for writing.

In the beginning of her Junior year in high school she moved to California and continued with her personal writing ventures. She took another creative writing class offered her Senior year, feeling as though that she couldn't have been luckier to land the class. Unlike any other class she took in the past, this teacher gave assignments given on college levels and was able to broaden the way she thought and wrote. Teachers can make such a great impact on a students life and the lessons she learned is still valued to this very day.

After she graduated she continued to live out her life for 13 years, continuing with her writing off and on as life allowed. Then she made a move to relocate to Missouri where she still resides with her husband and two step children.

After many years of continuous writing and creating the world of Eidelon she met her husband. He gave her the push she needed to concentrate more on her writing and the time to devote herself to it. With his love, encouragement and devotion to her talent they decided together to make the necessary steps to move forward with Roliath.

Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite

Roliath is a vampire novel and a stunning entry in The Eidelon Series by Amber Schunk Clubb, a book that will come across to fans of vampire stories as both a surprise and a delight. First, the author breaks the popular myths about vampires and makes them live in an intangible way in the society of normal men. The conflict that the characters experience results hugely from their unseen presence in a world of men, in their resolve to protect their kind by avoiding ruthless killing just to feed. Second, the author creates characters that are not just interesting but real, and fans will be longing to find out more about them and to fantasize about their world. Third, the story is both fast-paced and interesting, and the reader will want to rush through the pages, but the beautiful writing is a lure in itself.

This epic story chronicles the life of a clan of vampires, the Eidelon, exploring the depths of one of the greatest of their kind. Readers are introduced to Geannifer Whitlence, Roliath and many other powerful vampires. But the high stakes in this novel are construed around an old-age conflict between the Eidelon and the Osirians. The story transports readers to a world where myth becomes alive, and fictional characters take on solid flesh.

I couldn’t help but think about Amber Schunk Clubb in the ranks of Christopher Pike and his arresting series Thirst. The conflict is so beautifully developed and as readers get into the story, they are introduced to a whole new and interesting world, with its laws and customs, a world with its taboos also, a solid cast of characters, and a very rich plot. Roliath is a captivating story that will delight fans of the supernatural and vampire tales. A well-crafted and epic tale of struggle and triumph!
