After years of working as a successful novelist on her Calliope Reaper-Jones series, The Echo Park Coven Trilogy and co-authoring The Ghosts of Albion series with Christopher Golden, Amber is developing a growing body of work as a writer for television.
Drunk, Driving And 17 is the fourth movie Amber has written for The Lifetime Network following on from 2017's Oscar Pistorius: Blade Runner Killer and 2018’s Terror in The Woods. Then in 2020 Amber wrote A Murder To Remember, all three of these movies dealing with tragic real-life murder cases.
Amber has also written fiction for the small screen including a Murder In Mind and Death By Design both part of the popular Morning Show Mysteries series. Earlier this year Amber wrote a brand-new mystery for Hallmark entitled Family History Mysteries: Buried Past. This movie premiered in the USA on 8th of January, Amber’s birthday.
According to reports Drunk, Driving And 17 will have its USA premiere on Saturday, 15th of April at 8/7C in the USA.

There is no word on when or if Drunk, Driving And 17 will premiere in the UK. As soon as I have any more information on this and on the movie in general I will post it here as soon as possible.
I would like to congratulate Amber, I'm thrilled that she has had another opportunity to write the script for another television movie and as I said above add to her already impressive list of credits. A big thank you to friend and fellow Amber fan Laragh for the heads up on this news.
