About…

Sam spends most of his time in a different world to other people. If it isn’t one he’s created himself, it’s one he’s reading about. In the rare moments when this isn’t the case, Sam can either be found addicted to a sci-fi or crime show, re-watching Marvel movies, finishing up an assignment for his final year of studying Creative Writing at Sheffield Hallam University, or trying to get the dozens of ideas for stories in his head under some kind of control.
Sam has lived in the same small village in Yorkshire, surrounded by countryside on all sides ever since he could remember. His childhood saw him get into plenty of scrapes climbing trees and crossing rivers and generally believing he was Indiana Jones.
Sam gives credit to his Grandad for him wanting to be a writer, and his bedtime stories for keeping Sam’s imagination stoked. But credit must also go to Steven Spielberg, J K Rowling and Stephen King, who have provided plenty of inspiration over the years, too. Sam writes what he reads, and that is pretty much anything—save romance. Fantasy, thrillers, or crime: once an idea takes root, he can’t stop until the world, characters, and plot are on paper.
A huge Marvel fan, Sam one day hopes to pen a screenplay for one of their movies, or direct one, or do anything at all related to one. Until then, he’ll stick to his own fantasy worlds and wait for Marvel’s phone call.

Favourite movie: Jurassic Park

Favourite TV show: LOST or Fringe.

Favourite book: it’s not easy to answer that question, but I’ve narrowed it down to Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton, 11/22/63 by Stephen King, Under the Dome by Stephen King, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling. There are dozens more books that could make the list.

Favourite food: This one’s easy. Sunday Roast. Or peanut butter.

  1. Thanks for following my blog, I really appreciate it 🙂

  2. Hey Sam!
    I just saw your author interview, it was very good. I really enjoyed it,sounds like you and i like a lot of the same things.
    I just purchased your book. I work at an alternative junior high and I have kids who hate to read. I am always looking for something to peak their interests. I really wish they would let us pick what they had to read. Some of the required reading, I would have trouble getting through.
    Just wanted to touch base and let you know your interview came of well. Have a great day and Happy Trails To You!

  3. Hi Sam,

    I’ve just nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. I hope you enjoy 🙂

  4. Hi your book looks interesting. (The Keys of Time). Excellent to have teenagers writing. I’m way beyond being a teenager but I do have urban fantasy books as well if you’re interested in a review swap. I have two urban fantasy books: Seeking Dr. Magic and The Four Kings. Let me know if you’re interested. I’m at author@scottspotson.com and my website is http://www.scottspotson.com.
