I got super lucky and signed up to receive an ARC of Sami's first book, A Witch Called Red, before it published. It was SO FLIPPING GOOD, I had to have the second, and I'm eagerly awaiting the third (March 20th!!)
Since then, I've enjoyed getting to know Sami as a new friend and love having a Tucson connection--we both grew up in southern AZ! Small world, right?
Formerly a mild-mannered librarian, Sami had a quarter-life crisis and shook everything up. She started working in an LGBT homeless center, shaved some of her head, and got really into tarot. After realizing that her goal in life was to get out of her small town and she only made it 30 minutes up the highway, she filled a bag and left. That was two years and a dozen countries ago.
Currently, she lives the nomadic life and could be found anywhere with a decent wifi signal. Right now that means Brazil.
Sami answered my interview questions on camera via her YouTube channel, which I thought was pretty damn awesome. Click HERE to hear what she had to say.
