Greetings, visitor —
Welcome to our site and its associated links—please, take time to explore. We hope you find each of them useful, perhaps as an introduction to Florida's Sanibel and Captiva islands . . . the unique barrier islands where we lived for 48 years . . . or as a source for special, quality products and services, or factual information.
For more detail, take the time to click our BIO link.
BOOKS—Amber Publishing is a small publishing house that specializes in the production and distribution of a series of regional books, in both fiction and nonfiction genres. In 2016 we changed our operations to mesh with a semiretired lifestyle and launched our eBook Division.
Our titles pertain to the wildlife and historical values of South Florida. Some are still available only in paper, others have been revised and are available as eBooks for this growing market. We have recently released three new novels we have named the L.G. Clark Trilogy. These books are crime novels and related to Southwest Florida. They are available as eBooks and in paperback. There is a thread in each that connects to our best-selling historical novel, The Calusan. If you have an affection for Sanibel-Captiva, or Southwest Florida, we also recommend you read our nonfiction autobiographical history, Sanybel Light. This popular book has sold over 10,000 copies on Sanibel-Captiva alone. More recently we have published The Audubon Warden. This is a historically accurate novel about early wildlife protection in Southwest Florida.
Our SIGNS link will connect to a variety of small, mostly wildlife-themed, novelty signs. These are American-made, durable aluminum, high quality, and reasonably priced.
Our link, CALUSA INDIANS, offers an account of these extinct Floridians and their weaponry. The replicated artefacts are based on those discovered during a late 19th century archaeological dig on Marco Island in Southwest Florida. Featured among them is "The Key Marco Cat."
We continue to enjoy public speaking and are active on the regional speaking circuit. If your organization needs a speaker for a function who is well-versed and experienced in the human and natural history of South Florida, do not hesitate to contact us. An up-to-date listing of scheduled programs and their subject matter are outlined at our LECTURES link.
Thanks for stopping by . . . take a good look around . . . please come back often.
