Amberjack Publishing is a 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.
Dayna Anderson, Publisher
Dayna Anderson joined Amberjack Publishing in 2014. She holds a degree in Political Science and previously worked in government affairs, lobbying, and campaigning. An avid reader since childhood, she’s grateful for such a serendipitous career change. When Dayna’s not in the office, she can be found exploring the mountains with her family.
Keara Donick, Marketing & Publicity Director
Keara Donick joined Amberjack Publishing in 2017, but working with books has been her dream since she learned how to read. 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.
Cassandra Farrin, Managing Editor
Cassandra Farrin joined Amberjack Publishing in 2018 but has worked in the publishing industry since 2010. She is also a writer herself, represented by Jill Corcoran Literary Agency. A US-UK Fulbright Scholar, she mastered in the history of religion at Lancaster University in England. She has an abiding love of diverse Asian-Pacific cultures, especially Japan, and, when she isn’t writing, she’s reading anywhere from five to ten books at any given time, usually a mix of historical fantasy, literary fiction, and poetry. Otherwise she can be found geeking out over anime or road-tripping with her identical twin and their adoptive children.
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.
Stepheny Miller, Marketing & Production Associate
Stepheny Miller joined Amberjack Publishing in 2017. She holds a BFA in Graphic Design from Boise State University and is a seasoned artist and musician. She loves movies, food, and spending time with family and friends. In her spare time you can find her thrifting, adventuring in new places, sipping a dirty martini, or creating an original art piece--sometimes all four at once.
