Samantha Vérant is a travel addict, a self-professed oenophile, and a determined, if occasionally unconventional, French chef. Over the years, she’s visited many different countries, lived in many places, and worked many jobs— always on the search for the one thing that truly excited her. Then, one day, she found everything she’s been looking for: a passion for the written word and true love. Writing not only enabled her to open her heart, it led her to southwestern France, where she’s now married to a sexy French rocket scientist she met over twenty years ago, a stepmom to two incredible kids, and the adoptive mother to one ridiculously adorable Charteux cat. When she’s not trekking from Provence to the Pyrénées, tasting wine in American-s

Believe in yourself and keep on pushing. My pub journey was HARD. And now I call myself Seabiscuit- the little horse that had no chance of winning races, but did. Seabiscuit had people that believed in him. Find those people who believe in you-- and spur you on. Writing isn't a solitary task. You need support from your peers, family, and friends. (less)

My Big Fat Book News!

Penguin/Berkley/Remain +




Wait. What? I'm a Penguin/Random House author? With Cindy Hwang as my editor? Pinch me. I must be dreaming. (Just don't pinch me too hard because I bruise easily).

I am thrilled beyond belief! And I thought I'd walk you down the road of barbed wire and persistance that got me here.

In 2007, I was writing middle grade and YA. I linked up with fantastic writers and critiqu... Read more of this blog post »

“Don't be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don't have to live forever, you just have to live.”
Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

“To be fully seen by somebody, then, and be loved anyhow - this is a human offering that can border on miraculous.”
