Sam began creating stories at a young age. In high school, he wrote a few short pieces (they were terrible). In college, he wrote several more short pieces (also terrible). In 2008, he finished a draft of the fantasy-adventure novel, The Thief and Red Mandolin (not as terrible). He self-published it in 2009. He has written a few more book and several short stories, some of which have been published in anthologies.
Sam splits his time between writing, working in a cubicle, and Tae Kwon Do. He has also contributed articles to CarboardCarnage, writes, directs and produces the Fragments of Reality radio play and runs Solid Fiction Games & Books with his brother, Tim.
