Augustine Sam is a journalist by profession, a novelist by choice, and a poet by chance. A bilingual writer and an award-winning poet, he writes, not only hard news but literary works as well.

Before becoming a multi-genre author, he fell in love with poetry the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once. He was the winner of the Editors’ Choice Award in the North America Open Poetry Contest. His poems have been published in international anthologies, including "Measures of the Heart" & "Sounds of Silence."

His poetry collection: "Flashes of Emotion" was the 2015 finalist in the International Book Award Contest.
