Author Amber Dulin to Hold Book Signing Event in Valparaiso

Indiana author Amber Dulin will be hosting a book signing event in Valparaiso next weekend, April 13, at Designer Desserts to celebrate the release of her first book, “Wilma the Waitress and the Waffle House.” Dulin, a resident of Francesville, will be available to sign copies of her book which focuses on a waitress who seems to find herself in a variety of unanticipated situations.

“Wilma is a waitress – she’s not a very good waitress, she has a lot of mishaps and different things that happen to her. She catches her hair on fire, her mop bucket overflows, and the gist of the story is that she isn’t very good at being a waitress, so by the end of the book, she decides that maybe she will try another profession and it leaves the reader with, ‘Here’s the question: what should be Wilma’s profession?’” Dulin explained.

Dulin said she had a passion for writing since she’d been in school and throughout her whole life. However, having had children and other responsibilities, she fell out of having the time to pursue her passion. But, since then, she has picked up the art once again and it has culminated in the release of Wilma’s story.

The book can be purchased online at,,, or various bookstores nationwide. Dulin will be present to sign copies from 2 to 4 p.m. at Designer Desserts, 56 Lincolnway in Valparaiso.
