Mighty Big and Super Great: Texas Is The “Lone Star State”!

Amber Manning is an independent, working mother of 3 rowdy and handsome boys. She has a "no-nonsense, never quit, make no excuses" attitude and tries her best to stay positive throughout life! Her main purpose in this world, she believes, is to raise her boys properly, help others and make a difference!

She loves "the old school" way of living and believes that if more people would have that attitude that the world would be a better place! Born and raised in Texas, she is 100% Texan in heart! She loves her family, water sports, outdoors, reading, camping, bonfires, good music turned up loud and can sometimes be eccentric. She knows it and her response is, "being normal is boring!" She tries to always give the gift of a smile because she says she hopes it "brightens someone's day!" She believes every single person has struggles and believes the philosophy "you should never look down on someone, unless it's to help them up!" Her favorite story is the "Starfish Story" (you made a difference to that one).

Children are her favorite people in the world and have been since she was a child! They hold the most special place in her heart. She has always loved to write and has wanted to be an elementary or middle school teacher since she was 7 years old. In her book, she gets to "teach" children about Texas!



1.Tell us a little about yourself, your background and your book.

Growing up, I was the oldest of 3 girls. I had no brothers. I was good at school and band. I graduated at age 16.
I have 3 boys, ages 15, 13 and 7. The loves of my life! I spend my time working, taking care of my boys, enjoying nature.
My book is a non-fiction book about Texas that is meant to be an upbeat and fun Texas history lesson for elementary to middle school children.

2.What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?

I always hand-write everything in a spiral notebook first and then type it on the computer. I love the genuine form of writing. I then save the handwritten book.

3.What did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be an elementary or middle school teacher.

4.What’s the hardest thing about writing in your opinion?

For children’s books, the hardest thing is fitting all of the information I want to write into 32 pages.
5.Who designed your book cover?

Kory Fluckiger, my incredible, hand-picked illustrator…he will also be illustrating the next book in the series about the Texas Rangers …coming soon!

6.What famous person would you like to meet and why?

Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Sigmund Freud, Nolan Ryan, Kurt Warner, Mel Gibson, Nora Roberts, Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, Julia Roberts, Kevin Costner-in one way or another, they all inspire me.

7.What are your favorite quotes or motivational phrases?

Fall down seven times, stand up eight. Attitude is everything. If you think you can or if you think you can’t, you are correct. Never Quit. And, my absolute FAVORITE...The Starfish Story…'It made a difference for that one.'
