About Me

230198 Austin SD-23t

Sam Austin is the author of over 25 stories ranging from short horrors to the 136 thousand word fantasy epic ‘Damsel Knight.’ Her short story ‘Second Chance’ was awarded an honorable mention in the writers of the future contest. Her favourite genres to play in are fantasy, horror, and science fiction. Most of her works could be considered young adult.

Having autism and dyspraxia, she’s passionate about including underrepresented characters in her stories. Her novel ‘Damsel Knight’ features a gender questioning teenager in a fantasy world with very strict gender roles. Roy of the ‘Crystal Wolves’ series occasionally battles mental health issues alongside solving paranormal crimes. And her upcoming series stars a protagonist who happens to have a severe spinal injury.

She’s very fond of underdogs, so most of her stories contain characters way over their heads. The sort of guys or girls who are way too stubborn to back down even when they seem to have half of London gunning for them (Truth Seeker), or are surrounded by creatures who could kill them with a flick of the wrist (Crystal Wolves).

    Your article for lost and found is wonderful.

    I manage Bookbarn International a local and giant bookshop, which incidentally has hundreds of rows of books (during the week often many of them are empty so it’s a good place to find peace and quite).

    I shared your article on our Facebook page. I just wanted to say hello from a fellow book person!

    Best wishes,
    Fenna

    I am nomination you for the ‘Very Inspiring Blogger Award.’ I know not everyone is about awards but this one is an exception even if you don’t like the process. It shows that you are inspiring others and I want you to know you inspire me. It’s not for everyone, however, and it should not create pressure or frustration.

    I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. I know these things circle about. If you have already done it you can ignore it or do what I did. I got nominated a second time and since it helps other blogs out by getting new viewers I thought I would participate again. You know I Iove your blog so I had to nominate you:) The rules you can find here
