Sam Russell lives, works and writes from the family farm in rural Essex and describes herself as a "farmer by day and author by night".
Proudly independent, she is a member of the Romantic Novelists Association and the Alliance of Independent Authors.
Her passionate, contemporary romances are set in the countryside and she credits Jilly Cooper for inspiring her to write "hunks, horses, hanky-panky and hot-headed heroines."
Sam has three grown-up children and lives with her husband, horses, dogs and chickens.

It doesn't matter in the early stages if you don't like the words when you read them back, or if you story doesn't take shape immediately. You will return to your manuscript so many times (trust me - I know) to change, improve and sculpt. You may not even publish your early efforts. None of this matters, writing is all.(less)
