Well Hello There!
So you want to know a little more about me?
I’m Samantha Marie (bet you guessed that), a 35 year old Seattle-ite, turned Californian, addicted to coffee, community gardening, interesting conversations, home-made everything and all things bookish.
I’ve been a reader and a writer for about as long as I can remember, and am digging all the new mediums where people can share their love for the creative arts.
When I was 16, YA wasn’t really a thing – and I was getting bored with children’s books. At that point, thankfully, my Grandma Honey opened me up to the world of ROMANCE NOVELS.
I was poking around her house, looking for something to read, when she handed me (A Harlequin Romance) “Married In A Moment” by Jessica Steele. I devoured it, and was instantly hooked. Actually I still have it (battered and all), as a testament to the beginning of my obsession!
I felt so sophisticated reading from the Harlequin section of the library, and soon my friend B and I would spend our weekends toting home bags filled to the BRIM – reading them back to back together for hours on end. Every summer found me nose in a book. As I got older, I branched out from HQ to selecting books at random from the fiction section. Though I have slowed down a bit (thanks adult responsibilities), my free time usually see’s me well ensconced into a book. My love of reading has branched out to many more genres that you can find in my Review Policy tab .
As I said, I’m also a writer, who participates in NaNoWriMo every chance I get, and have published a poetry e-book:
( You can find it HERE)
I am also currently plotting my way through some WIPs that were NaNo cast-offs.
When I’m not nosed into a book, you can usually find me cooking, hiking, playing trivia, dreaming of my future self sustaining garden, or having a laugh with friends and family.
Thank you for stopping by!
