Hi there – my name is Samantha. I am a freelance and fiction writer living in Alberta, Canada. I have kept a blog, in some form or another, since 1997, though my earlier ones were too embarrassing to think about. I started this blog to discuss aspects of my freelance and fiction writing career and writing in general. Hopefully my experiences and humbly-offered tips will be of some use to other writers out there.
Since 2000, I have had non-fiction articles, book reviews, short stories and poetry published both in print and online. I also enjoy editing and proper spelling, which might sound strange but is good for a writer!
Aside from being a writer, I am a (very) amateur photographer, history nerd and chronic scarf knitter. I live with my fiance in a neighbourhood with lots of trees. I enjoy road trips, not-so-strong coffee, crosswords and talk radio.
