My name is Samantha and I am thirty one years old. I work as a bookkeeper in an accounting firm in East London in the Eastern Cape. I am a single woman living at home and I spend my evenings and weekends writing contemporary romance novels.
I have always wanted to write stories as I have always been an avid reader. In 2011 during six months of unemployment, I decided to give creative writing a chance. What inspired me to start writing was a computer game I used to play. I loved the storyline, yet when I completed the game, I felt dissatisfied with one of the romance storylines therefore it inspired me to write fanfiction for the love interests.
Last year, I decided to write a romance story using my imagination ... read more

I've always enjoyed reading, it was a way for me to escape and explore different places. As a South Carolina native it has given me great pleasure in sharing the imagination I have developed from reading. I've always loved visiting Charleston and all the surrounding areas, and South Carolina hold so many historical memories along with some charming and romantic qualities. When making the decision to write Torn Desires, I wanted to base it on a place I loved, and what better place than the one known for its "Southern Charm" than Charleston.

Ever since I remember I have loved books. My mother… excuse me, Santa Claus and the Three Magic Kings used to give me classic books for the holidays, such as The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Treasure Island, Starship Troopers, etc. Some were books I adored, others (Starship Troopers) I didn’t bother to read until way later, when I was at college… and also loved. However, it wasn’t until a New York trip in which my cousin lent me his copy of Jurassic Park (the movie hit theaters that summer, and he wanted me to read it before we went to see Spielberg’s take) that I began my fandom literary stage, beginning with Michael Crichton.
A few years later, I decided to take on writing.

Sam Wilding is fast becoming an established children’s author. Best known for his fantasy epic, 'The Denthan Series' and 'Windscape'. His most recent book, 'The Black and White Boy',
is an adventure story that tackles racism from a different angle. 'A boy with dark skin had to be thick-skinned in the 70s, and when Sunny Wilson survives a horrible accident he soon realises that the racist taunts and bullying from his classmates are the least of his worries.' Sam Wilding yet again explores a tricky subject through a delightful and often funny adventure story. You really get a sense of the 70s in Scotland, yet the book is still very relevant today.

Three years ago, in the throes of the Global Financial Crisis, I found myself freshly unemployed. At that time, rather than give into fear, I decided that I would think differently about unemployment, accentuate the positive, and use the time constructively – to develop myself in ways I had not thought possible. I focused on exercise and cooking, two things which I enjoy to this day. I also wrote The Story of Sam as a quasi-spiritual guide for myself.
