My latest novel, Madame Fiocca, is now available. Based on a true story, this gripping adventure follows the tempestuous life of Nancy Wake before and during the Second World War.

The Beauty Shop, my debut novel, was awarded the B.R.A.G. Medallion. It is based on the true story of Sir Archibald McIndoe and the Guinea Pig Club - an exclusive club for RAF pilots and airmen who required plastic surgery as a result of their war injuries and were under the care of this enigmatic New Zealander and pioneering plastic surgeon.

I am presently working on my latest book, a contemporary romance, due to be released later in 2020, after which I will be continuing with the next historical fiction title.

Music is the only noise I will allow in my head while writing. Tv, radio, conversation are all distracting but music is good for the mind and soul, and I believe it helps me create. Fortunately, I haven't had any major problems with writer's block as yet.(less)

The Forgotten History of the Radium Girls By Historical Fiction Author Samantha Wilcoxson



I have loved reading about history for as long as I can remember. On more than one occasion, I was asked what class I was reading a book for and I had to admit that it was something I had selected to read for enjoyment. Yet, I was not familiar with the story of the “radium girls” until I listened to Kate Moore’s excellent book.It was one of those snippets of history that seems unbelievable.

“Sometimes you're trying so hard to get your life together and still it's not enough, everything is falling apart. What to do, you're asking. Just keep going through hell for yourself, not for everyone else. Richer with that wisdom, I will build my happiness from nothing. I will rise from the dust. And I will do it on my own. I will live for myself and I won’t look at the others.”
