Author & Poet


Born in the US,  Samantha has been writing since she was a young child initially starting out with song lyrics before moving on to poems and short stories. Her first publication was winning a poetry contest for the poem I Hate The Ways at the age of 16. Samantha hopes that the message of lessons learned, strength, and resilience is received by all who read her books. 

Samantha had a love for travel from a young age. Road trips with friends and family branched from local areas to cross country and even spanned internationally from a young age. This sparked her interest in being more culturally aware. Samantha has lived all across the USA, New Zealand, and Australia and has visited more than twenty countries. Samantha has future plans to establish a family home somewhere in Europe with her children.


Though Samantha is a published author, she is also an entrepreneur, owning two companies.  Her hobbies include traveling, exploring museums and castles, kayaking, and singing when she finds the time. 

Recollections Vol 1

No one teaches us how to reminisce. Sometimes our thoughts are just a recollection of memories past, for better or for worse, they belong to us.


Jo was a happy, intelligent, and innocent child until the universe sent her spiralling down an unforeseen path, introducing her at an early age to things no child, or parent, should ever endure. 


Fast forward more than 20 years and Jo, a hobby fictional author, decides to sit down and write a proper ‘tell-all’ book of her life.


From becoming a modern-day mail order bride, to exotic dancing to make ends meet, saucy nights spent on the town and failed relationships, Jo had always known that one day, she’d have to expose her skeletons and explore the events that had moulded her into the person she’d become. And with her marriage in breakdown and finding herself unemployed, there was no better time to start.


Reminiscing about her life as she sat down to write at her favourite cafe, sipping on her signature fig martini, Jo was flooded by memories just waiting to be unveiled.
