About Samantha MC Luck

Intuitive adults, annoyed older siblings, and patient parents knew that Samantha M.C. Luck would grow up to be a writer. As a small child, her stories went on and on and on and on… “And thennn,” she would repeat in the middle of mental paragraphs until the story was completely told. They all knew her path before she did. It wasn’t until her fourth grade project to write, illustrate, and display her own book that she knew she was born to be a writer. She presented to her class her own version of Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. It was full of fun, fear, love, and candy, plenty of candy!!

Many years later, Samantha, raised in Southeast, D.C., and Prince George’s County, Maryland, went on to pursue a degree in journalism-magazine production at Florida A&M University and earned her M.B.A. at Trinity (Washington) University. Writing remained her passion as she continued through school. She wrote for her college’s newspaper and magazine. She interned at the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper, freelanced for The Washington Informer Newspaper, conducted interviews, and wrote articles for ShowOff Magazine (a Bermuda publication), and JukeBoxDC.com, an internationally known music blog.

Samantha has had the opportunity to interview several artists and influential figures from Talib Kweli, Ryan Leslie, Dawn Richard, to Teedra Moses, Anthony Hamilton, and Doug E. Fresh. While interviewing is fun for Samantha because she loves to listen and ask questions, she has brought her focus back to her first love–creative writing.

Organic Leaves is a story Samantha developed over the course of a few years, building from her own experiences, the universal of experiences of young women in college, and the secret trials that are inevitable for most of them. Samantha created an imaginative story of love, pain, paralyzing fear, and exciting rebellion. She wrote the book to bring many issues to light and to share that we, as a community, are not so different from each other.

Samantha currently works in trade publishing and is working on her second novel.
