I live happily in Bury near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderfully gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I have been writing full time since 2014, I write every day, I read every day, so we more than likely have loads in common.

I currently have seven books available on Amazon. My genres are comedy-drama and historical fiction. I enjoyed writing them, you will enjoy reading them, promise!

My credentials are, I used to be a registered nurse, but had to accept early retirement due to my health. I participated in a two year creative writing course at a local library. I am partway through a Creative Writing and English Literature degree.

This makes me sound a bit thought disordered, but I am able to control it by hand-writing ideas down in several note books. Once I have done this, I feel 'clear' to write. I did write a blog post about it : https://samanthahenthornfindstheright.... I would say if you have writer's block, then chill your boots and come back to it at a later date. (less)

A note on reading lists.

This is more to do with my reading life than my writing life. You may or may not know, I am doing a creative writing degree as a mature student. For lots of boring reasons, my brain doesn't work as fast as it used to. I must get a head-start on the forthcoming year's module. I looked at the reading list yesterday, and my eyes were all over my face! This means after I have finished the books on... Read more of this blog post »

1962 by Samantha Henthorn
"Light and gentle, this is a nostalgic book that doesn't worry too much about tense action or vivid drama, but instead relies on the reader's desire to be swept back in time to a real place. I found this book easy to read, if a little slow, but kin..." Read more of this review »
The Ghosts of Curmudgeon Avenue by Samantha Henthorn
