  1. How awesome; I am on a little writing hiatus lately but it was wonderful to learn that Samantha had published a chapbook of short stories. I am a huge fan of Samantha and I once said to her that many of her stories are a little like haunted house rides; you never quite know what twists and turns are coming and suddenly some sly humor comes and hits you out of nowhere. :) It takes a really brilliant writer to be able to take the reader on a journey like that.

    One of her biggest strengths is creativity; my favorite of her stories was about the Titanic, but retold from the point of view of the icebergs. I don’t know if that is in this chapbook but wherever it is, I recommend that folks find it and read it. :)

  2. Samantha is courageous in her writing and that’s what makes her stories special. She’s not afraid to push the envelope and when she’s feeling particularly risky she swallows the envelope whole. I learned a lot from reading her stories, specifically to not be afraid to tell the story I want to tell in the way I want to tell it. That type of freedom for a writer is essential for growth.

    xxoo, Sam.
