The young mother chose prison over rehab, after admitting to doing drugs while in rehab the last time and realising it would not contribute positively to her sobriety. She did 17 months of a five year sentence in an Indiana prison.
Now, Amber tells In Touch about her tell-all book.
“It’s a brutally honest account of how bad my life got,” Amber says of the memoir, entitled Never Too Late.
The book will cover everything that’s happened in her life so far.
“Addiction. Mental illness. Death. Divorce. Betrayal. Violence. Suicide attempts. Felony charges. Rehab. Drug overdoses and jail,” Amber writes. “I’m going to tell you how it all happened.”
Amber hopes her young fans and her own daughter, Leah, 5, will learn from her mistakes. “I’m living proof,” she adds, “that it’s never too late to change your life for the better.”
Last week, Amber reaffirmed that she would not hide her mistakes.
She tweeted “I will never be ashamed of my past, it makes me who I am today.” Adding, “I’ve learned so much it’s a blessing not a burden…sending love always.”
