Hi, my name is Amber Layne Nieves.
I’m a writer, a proud mom, and the creator of mamapickypants.com.
So you’re probably wondering, “Who is Mama Picky Pants, anyway?”
Mama Picky Pants is a nickname my son gave me when he was six. It was his way of affectionately calling me out for being picky about things needing to be a certain way. The nickname was born in an environment of love and laughter; triggering a cascade of inspiration that ignited my desire to write children’s books. Books that tell good stories. #Heartist stories.
I’ve always been a writer at heart, but I didn’t allow myself the time to enjoy it, until recently. With the many responsibilities of life, I focused on other day-to-day aspects until I allowed the Mama Picky Pants persona into my heart and discovered my own creative path. Suddenly, I knew I had a stories that had to be shared with the rest of the world.
I enjoyed the feeling of DIVINE MAGIC I felt when I held my first completed book in my hands, and began sharing it with parents and teachers, so they could read the story with children everywhere.
Great to meet you here! (feel free to say hello on the blog and social media!)
-Amber (aka Mama Picky Pants)
