More About the Author

Visit www.samanthablair.com for more information.

Ms. Blair lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with her loving husband and two cats. Her writing slows every fall with the start of the Steelers season before making an amazing rebound shortly after the Super Bowl. She has a full time career as a marketing director and website designer, but in her spare time she can frequently be found writing for the shear joy of it.

She and her husband enjoy traveling, camping, down-hill snow skiing, and reading post-apocalyptic fiction together. Taking hikes and wilderness survival classes are among their typical bonding activities.

An avid reader, Samantha devours about 250 books a year from all genres and time periods. Her favorite authors include Stephen King, Fannie Flagg, Stephanie Meyer, and Henry David Thoreau.


Q. Was there ever a book that changed your life?

A. Absolutely, but it's actually a series of seven books. The Dark Tower by Stephen King started me down a long road that traveled through all of his writing. There's a lot of it, and I learned a lot from reading his works. What an imagination! I'll take a good storyteller over a Pulitzer Prize winner any day.

Q. Where do your stories begin?

A. It's usually a mental short film of an unusual situation. With Protectors it was a young woman running through a cornfield in the dead of night. The story that I'm working on now was originally about a very poor woman leaving a very wealthy man. It has since turned into a story about a young woman who auctions off her virginity to an oil tycoon. I try to figure out why the people in my head are in those awkward situations, and then I write them a way out of it.

Q. What is your guiltiest pleasure?

A. I'm a sucker for m/m fiction or chocolate mousse cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory. It's a tie. If someone writes a steamy guy on guy scene involving chocolate cake, I'm doomed.

Q. What is your greatest fear?

A. Failure. I can be kind of hard on myself.

Q. Why did you start writing?

A. I'm a professional graphic designer in my "real life" and I needed an outlet for my creativity that wasn't tied to my job.

Q. What do you find is the hardest thing about writing?

A. Keeping to a steady schedule. I always want to write fifty different stories all at one time, and I have trouble finishing one idea before moving on to the next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be put off by the title 1 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title of this book is very unfortunate and a little off putting.It is about a billionaire who is challenged to swop his rich and priveleged life for that of a down and out homeless person.To experience the poor (at it worst) way of life.He accepts and encounters many people on the way through his adventure good and bad.He also meets a girl,so there is a love interest too,but in a nice way not all those porn sections you come across in a lot of the free or low cost books.Which I hate.It was a very good read and I could not put it down,it keeps you entertained right through to the end.I downloaded this book when it was free but even if I had to pay for this book I would still have taken it,for a low cost book it does warrant 5 stars.I am looking forward to reading more of Samantha Blair's books.

3.0 out of 5 stars Likeable characters and good story 21 Jan 2013
By An avid reader. TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
I so wanted to give this more stars but I couldn't justify more than a three star. Don't get me wrong, it's a fun read but I got a little bit annoyed though that eveyone had a turn at their point of view, and I mean everyone - well actually I can't recall Alissa's dad having a spot but he is totally in the minority. I get why in some respects everyone had a POV but I thought it too much as some points of the story were gone over twice as we read each POV. I didn't feel the need to get into every character's head.

I also pondered the fact had they use protection when they finally 'hit the sack' together? Was it left to our imagination? Not sure on that particular point but I felt the lack of protective sex instantly and as it had been consented or discussed I found that a little odd of the author to not have it mentioned.

That said though, I did enjoy the premise, just wish it had been executed a little differently and then it would have a been a whole different ball game reader captivation wise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want a smile on your face 9 Feb 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Got a kindle for Christmas and am hoovering up kindle books. This was a great price so one click and it was mine. Hadn't read this author before but will in the future. A lovely easy reading book with a few twists. The characters are well described. If you want a good night in with a bottle of wine, then this is the book to read. You will have a smile on your face the whole time. Enjoy.

I love Samantha Blair books. Although this was a bit predictable in places, I would still recommend it for curling up on the sofa with horrible weather outside.
