Samantha spent the last decade working in the book publishing industry. Once a literary agent, she represented grown-up authors and artists, negotiating 5- and 6-figure children's and young adult book deals with major publishers like Penguin Random House, Macmillan, and Simon & Schuster.

She now works as a storytelling coach, writing mentor, and publishing consultant to help authors and artists get unstuck, tell their stories, and prepare their books for the publication process. Grown-ups can learn more about how they can work with her (and find classes/workshops just for them). You can learn more about Samantha HERE
