Author Samantha Rose #interview

Please give a warm welcome to author Samantha Rose


Tell us a bit about yourself

Hmm, where do I start. I’m a Sci-fi author. I plan to venture out to other genres in the near future. I’m actually writing two contemporary romance novellas that will be out this summer. I’m originally from Nova Scotia, Canada. After meeting my husband I moved to the USA. Flash forward 8 years. I currently live in Alabama with my husband, two sons, four cats, and my fish. We move around a lot. I live a quiet lifestyle of housewife, and stay at home mom. My life is a bit norm, so I don’t have any crazy stories to tell.



Have you always wanted to become an author?

Surprisingly no, I recently wanted to become one — I want to say within the last 4 years. I adore so many great authors. I’d have to give them all credit for me writing today. If it wasn’t for new authors creating new worlds and books, I likely wouldn’t have been inspired. So, I’d like to shout out to all the wonderful authors out there, thank you for being my inspiration!



What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

My inspiration was fear. Having fear is healthy, but what if you wrote about that fear to help overcome it? So, that’s what I did. I have a huge fear of snakes. HUGE. Alabama has a lot of snakes in its green wonderland. Often times, when I go for nature walks with my boys, we see snakes sunning themselves. I usually walk (run) by them, I have respect for them. Meaning, I keep away from them. Though I fear our serpent friends, I know a good amount about them. I decided to write about them to help myself. So far, it’s not working, at all — but the experience has been a blast!



What are you working on now?

Well, I just finished book two in my Sky Serpent Clan series. I’m doing two contemporary romance novellas, it’ll be part of a Forever safe series which will feature many other amazing authors. After that I plan to write about Tara. She’s the next in my Sky Serpent Clan series line. That’s what I’m currently working on right now.



Do you have any quirks while writing?

Possibly? I always have one of my four cats, tea, and some form of candy within arms reach.


What are your hopes for the future?

I know I’m not perfect, but one day I hope my writing will grow, and get better with time. That people who read my books, will continue to enjoy them.



Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

As a newbie myself, I want others out there to know — don’t be afraid to take that jump. Take the first step, you can do it! Write what makes you happy and don’t stop. Surround yourself with other authors and support one another. Having author friends are wonderful. Lastly, don’t take bad reviews to heart. Not everyone will enjoy your book and that’s okay, that doesn’t mean others won’t enjoy your book. I’ll be cheering you all on from the sidelines.


Do you have anything to say to your readers?

A huge thank you to everyone that has read my first book, and my second. To those that helped me spread the word around, and those that have supported me, it helped a lot. To the spectacular readers that have posted reviews stating they loved my book, and gave me tips. You make writing worth it. You’re all truly appreciated!
