“How can you not love reading? It's wonderful. An excursion, an adventure... an escape from reality.' She adored reading and had a hard time grasping anyone not loving it.”
Robin Caroll, Injustice For All

“Beyond that row was a double row of trees. Sam headed in that direction, Dad on her heels.
"Be careful of snakes."
That stopped her in her tracks. She could deal with a snarling dog. A hissing cat. Even a spitting ferret like her cousin Chris had, but she had the biggest fear if snakes. It didn't matter if it was a grass snake or a supposedly good snake that ate the poisonous snakes. In Sam's opinion, the only good snake was a dead snake. Dead and chopped up into little, itty, bitty pieces.

~From "Samantha Sanderson On the Scene”
Robin Caroll

“Sam: "You know what they say about kids of LEOs, right?"
Makayla: "LEO?"
Sam: "Law Enforcement Officer"
Makayla: *laughs* "Cute. No, what do they say about LEO's kids?"
Sam: "That we're most likely to cross the legal line, or at least go right up to it."
Makayla: "You fit that description to a T."
Sam: "Hey now."
Makayla: "Girl, you've got to admit you push the limits. A lot.”
Robin Caroll, Samantha Sanderson Off the Record
