About Me

samheadshot

Writing and reading (and editing) are my passions, and I am so lucky to be able to live my dream every day. Publishing my first novel, Finding Lucas, made me bawl like a baby, and the euphoria has never worn off.

I’ve been a writer ever since I could pick up a pen and sent my first manuscript, Freddy the Flame, to publishers when I was ten years old. Sadly, it was rejected, but I was not to be deterred. Though Freddy the Flame has long been shelved, a lifelong passion to write was born.

Over the last several years, I have found a love for writing psychological/domestic thrillers. I’ve long been fascinated with the genre, and I had always wanted to delve into it myself. Now I am, and it’s been an incredible experience. The novel I’ve been working on has taken me on an epic journey that continues today.

I’m the co-founder of BookBuzz, a live author/reader/blogger event that has been held in New York City and Toronto, and I have a Master of Education in Applied Linguistics. Doing that degree was one of the best decisions I ever made because it led me to write my first full-length novel.

I love reading as much as I love writing so if I’m not tapping away at my computer, I’m probably curled up on my couch with a book. In between all of that, I’m a sucker for reality TV, dancing, and listening in on other people’s conversations.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. How wonderful that you’ve been able to make your dream a reality! I’m currently working on mine ~ recently launched my first website where I promote responsible dog ownership. Getting ready to launch my first e-book in a few weeks as well, so please wish me luck with that endeavor!

    I’ll be sure to check out your book 🙂
