She recently wrote the books MONSTER'S NEW UNDIES, illustrated by Tad Carpenter (Orchard Books, 2017) and BACK TO SCHOOL WITH BIGFOOT, together with Martha Brockenbrough, illustrated by Dave Pressler (Arthur Levine Books, 2017), because she loves both Bigfoot and underpants, but especially *together*.

She has written cartoons and promos for Nickelodeon and other networks. She has written comic books and commercials.
She has written movie trailers, theme songs, slogans, magazine articles, poems, TV-books, sticker books and professional books.
You name it, Sam writes it.

And when she ISN'T WRITING.... She's doing voice-overs, traveling the world, and helping rescue dogs.

she writes about that, too!

Samantha splits her time between New York City and sunny Santa Monica with her dog Polly Pocket.
