Sam is not superwoman, but sometimes she’d love to borrow her cape (and her boots!). Now, she sweats out the heat in San Antonio, Texas, with her amazing husband, Justin, and their three young daughters, Flynn, Reese, and Bo. Before that, she spent her childhood in Georgia, moved to Montana for high school, and returned to the South to graduate from Auburn University in Alabama (with a short stint in San Diego, California and a longer one living at the gates of Disney World in Orlando, Florida). Sam is a former elementary teacher, current work-from-home mom, published author of RYAN REVISITED, forever Nutella lover, and she loves leading women’s groups that encourage each other. Her passion is words-reading them, writing them, and sharing them with the people she loves. And Nutella. Her passion is also Nutella.
