About Amber

With readers in more than fifty countries, feel-good fiction author Amber Jakeman was a journalist, ghost writer and editor before succumbing to her addiction to uplifting endings.

She writes from her tiny apartment on the edge of the NSW east coast, exploring serious themes such as sustainability, women’s empowerment, homelessness, addiction, grief and trauma, with a light touch and positive resolutions.

Amber’s recently launched five-book House of Jewels series follows the fortunes of three generations of the fictitious Huntley family of jewellers in Australia, the US and France.

Summer Beach, the first in her Escape to the Coast series, will be launched in 2023.

Amber Jakeman warmly acknowledges Australia’s First Nations People, our first storytellers.


My House of Jewels series is set on three continents, and it’s wonderful to now have VIP readers in more than 50 countries,” says Amber.

“So far, my readers are from Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bahamas, Barbados, Belgium, Bermuda, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Columbia, Croatia, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Ghana, Isle of Man, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Lebanon, Luxemburg, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Philippines, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Martin, South Africa, Singapore, Spain, Swaziland, Sweden, Turkey, Uganda, the UK, the US and Venezuela!

“Please feel free to share my links with friends and family wherever they may be in the world.”

When not writing, Amber enjoys time with family and friends, sailing with her husband, travel, walking and savouring other writers’ creations.
