Well Hello There!

So you want to know a little more about me?


I’m Samantha Marie (bet you guessed that), a mid 30’s Seattle-ite, turned Californian. I’m addicted to coffee, cooking, interesting conversations, home-made everything and most importantly: all things bookish/writing.

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 (in the olden days), YA wasn’t really a thing yet – 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 either bent over a WIP or 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. You can read more about that in the “Books” section.

When I’m not nosed into a romance novel, 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!
