With 31 years of creating, writing and storytelling as a hobby, Samuel thought it was time to fulfil a dream he only just acquired. In 2015, he quit his job as a chef of 17 years, due to several factors one being a full-time carer for his mother and the lack of creativity in his life.
Over the last two years, he has accumulated many relationships in the writing world which have to lead him to become a mentor, public speaker, teacher, promoter of fellow authors and he also volunteers his time for various writing groups situated on the Gold Coast i.e. Gold Coast Novel Writers, Writers Activation and has just been re-elected as Social Media Manager for the Gold Coast Writers Association.
Along with publishing a series of short reads - 'FableLands' - Samuel continues the development of his first major novel Lake Merrin.
