Sam began creating stories at a young age. In high school, he wrote a few short pieces (they were terrible). In college, he wrote several more short pieces (also terrible). In 2008, he finished a draft of the fantasy-adventure novel, The Thief and Red Mandolin (not as terrible). He self-published it in 2009. He has written a few more book and several short stories, some of which have been published in anthologies.

Sam splits his time between writing, working in a cubicle, and Tae Kwon Do. He has also contributed articles to CarboardCarnage.com, writes, directs and produces the Fragments of Reality radio play and runs Solid Fiction Games & Books with his brother, Tim.

When time allows, he enjoys playing video and tabletop games and hanging out with his awesome wife and daughter. They live in the American Midwest with their overweight cat and overly-sensitive dog.

Life is good.
