Amber Jo Ann is a Louisiana native with Cajun & French Creole blood (with a dash of Louisiana German). She trained in the art of storytelling at The Second City, iO Chicago, Chicago Dramatists, and with Paola Coletto.

Next, she’s tackling the color orange, which will take readers inside the world of college study abroad programs as well as ancient Egypt.
