Amber Bryan Kim

My name is Amber. I’m 33 years old and am serving a life sentence. I’m a witch, activist, trans woman, nerd, and a writer. I grew up in Priest River Idaho where I spent many lazy afternoons sitting under (or just as often in) a tree listening to my diskmen and reading a book.

I love sci-fi, fantasy, and nonfiction books. Ursala K. Le Guin, Douglas Adams, Octavia Butler, Kim Stanley Robinson, and Brandon Sanderson are some of my favorite authors. I have very eclectic taste in music. I listen to pretty much anything. Avril Lavigne, The Pretty Reckless, and Kesha are some of my favorites.

I’m looking for friendship. I need people who I can talk to about anything and everything. Also, just to put it all on the table off the top, I do need some monetary support. I’ve been in prison for a decade and a half and it has been really hard to be so poor for so long.
