Amberjack Publishing’s promise is the joy of discovery and the celebration of flawed characters who help readers connect to humanity. Our authors believe in a world which can be more thoughtful, more humane, and more beautiful. We respect the faith that each reader commits to trusting us to share individual stories that are
vital, empathetic, and transformational.

Amberjack Publishing is a female-run publishing company based in Idaho with a strong vision and passion for books. We have officially been telling stories since 2014, but we were born storytellers. We are committed to sharing the literature of the individual that dares to stand alone, one who isn't afraid to challenge the status quo, to be different—to be more, not less. We want to help writers tell these stories and to help readers discover them.

She holds a BA in Public Relations from The Pennsylvania State University and an MA in Interactive Media from Elon University. Her ideal world is one where every coffee shop has toast on the menu, and she daydreams of one day moving to a tiny cottage on the coast of Ireland with her dog and all of her books.

Jenny Miller, Senior Editor

She has a house full of animals and greatly enjoys cheese.

Cherrita Lee, Editor
Cherrita Lee graduated from The College of Idaho in 2010, where she read and wrote in exorbitant quantities, exiting college with a well-rounded education that honed her editing and research skills. She is what you might call an "avid indoorswoman" and can be found reading anything from ancient Greek literature to manga. Delighting in indulging her nerdy side, she is a huge fangirl of Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Anime, Sherlock, Supernatural, and all things British and Korean . . . and the Oxford comma. Blessed with great coworkers who really care, employee-set hours allowing her to work wherever and whenever she needs, and getting to read books for a living, Cherrita truly feels like she won the lottery when she was hired at Amberjack Publishing in 2014.

Gaby Thomason joined Amberjack Publishing in 2016. She was previously an academic specializing in the ancient world. Gaby holds a BA in History from Boise State University and an MLitt in Classics from the University of Glasgow and has done archaeological work in Pompeii. Her biggest crushes are all on men who have died. . . thousands of years ago. She loves the brain, H.P. Lovecraft, and the timeless J.R.R. Tolkien. She's also convinced that she made eye-contact and shared a smile with Patrick Stewart while walking down the street.
