With 31 years of creating, writing and storytelling as a hobby, Samuel thought it was time to fulfil his dream. In 2015, he left his job as a chef of 17 years. This was due to several factors, two of the most prominent were becoming a full-time carer for his mother andthe lack of creativity in his life.
Over the last two years, he has fostered many relationships in the writing community which have to lead him to become a mentor, public speaker, teacher, promoter of fellow authors and volunteer for various writing groups situated on the Gold Coast; including Gold Coast Novel Writers, Writers Activation and he has just been re-elected as Social Media Manager for the Gold Coast Writers Association.
Along with publishing a series of short reads - 'FableLands' - Samuel continues to develop his first major novel Lake Merrin which is due for release soon.
