About Me

Samantha ClarkSo you want to know about me.

I love cartoons, I’m addicted to chocolate and my day isn’t full complete if I haven’t written something — and I don’t mean my never-ending to do list.

Oh! Not what you wanted to know.

Professionally, I have been a writer and editor for more than 20 years, working for newspapers, magazines and websites.

As a journalist, I have written for city and community newspapers, as well as national consumer and business-to-business magazines. Among them are The Tampa Tribune, Photographic Magazine and Mustang Monthly.

For 12 years, I worked as a managing editor for magazines, including six automotive magazines and a home entertainment business magazine.

In February 2010, I co-founded DiscDish.com, a DVD and Blu-ray website that offers readers news and reviews on the upcoming mainstream titles as well as great movies they’ve probably never heard of.

Now I focus on writing and editing books. I’m a freelance editor with Yellow Bird Editors, working on books for all ages, especially childrens, young adult, fantasy/sci-fi and nonfiction.

I write middle-grade and young adult novels for children and those who are children at heart. My fiction has been published in Hunger Mountain, the literary magazine of the Vermont College of Fine Arts, was a finalist in the Writers League of Texas manuscript contest and won the Houston SCBWI Joan Lowery Nixon Award. I’m represented by Rachel Orr, at Prospect Agency.
