S. D. Saint

Biography

Hailing from the state of Texas in the Great American Southwest, Samuel D. Saint has been an avid reader from a young age, and when you fill a child’s head with so much inspiration, well, new stories are bound to be born!

"Ever since I was little I have loved good stories. My parents used to read me novels for bedtime stories, and I remember waiting with eager anticipation every night to find out what would happen next.

Then life got busy and my mom and dad couldn't read to me every night anymore, and I was stuck! Like a lot of kids my age I didn't like to read. It was hard putting together all those letters, and sounds, and words, but unlike most I was driven by a burning desire: to know what happens next!

So began my phase of hiding under my blanket with my flashlight, devouring every word of my latest adventure, praying my parents wouldn't find out I hadn't gone to sleep like I was supposed to. Through great authors like Lewis, Tolkien, and many others, I discovered entire worlds to explore, full of adventure, suspense, mystery, drama, humor, and food for thought.

Eventually, the seeds of all those great stories sprouted in the fertile garden of my young imagination, and grew into new stories. I wanted to craft my own worlds, not just explore the worlds of others.

Throughout my life I have found incredible delight from reading a good book, and now I want to pass on that pleasure to others. And while I don't claim to be a writer who can stand among the legends I have grown to love, I do hope that you, my future readers, will find what I have found...

A grand adventure, in a whole other world..."

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was about fourteen. Up till then I just made up stories in my head. Then one day I got the idea to tell my mother one of my tales as a "bedtime story". It took several nights, and I was sort of making it up as I went along, but by the end she was quite impressed, and encouraged me to write it down. Well, it took a lot of convincing, but I finally agreed and that was how I got started.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
For me, the heart of writing fiction is telling a great story, and I have always loved telling stories. Writing allows me to take all the stories bouncing around in my head and give them substance. The blank page is my play ground where I can create anything I want. Plus I have to admit I have fun subjecting my characters to whatever my whim fancies. My poor, poor characters...
