Sam has loved reading and writing fantasy since she picked up The Sword of Shannara at the age of thirteen and was hooked. Born in the UK, she grew up in Dunedin, on New Zealand's South Island.
Struck by the travel bug in her early twenties, she left for Europe two days after graduating from university, ending up in Rome, where she spent the next decade. Over the past decade she has worked as a language and cooking tutor, translator, editor and web content writer. She currently resides in New Zealand.
Sam loves creating page-turning epic fantasy adventures for her readers to get lost in!
