Samara-isms

  • Which do I fall in love with first: character or plot? Characters hands down. I think that’s one of the best aspects of being a writer is the characters that take over the story and soon after, your sleep.”
  • “My guilty pleasure…besides a chocolate fetish. I would have to say…dancing barefoot in my living room. There’s something very freeing about partying like a rock star in your private domain.”
  • “Passion, Love, relationships, life such are the elements that surround my stories. Tales that are born out of a character’s wants, needs, aspirations or fears. They simply allow me to join them on their wild ride. Along the journey, I hope to take readers with me.
