​ I came to Samantha with a collection of personal essays that  needed a spark. She opened my eyes to so much that I couldn’t  see. Not only did she provide the spark, she stuck by my side  throughout the rewriting process and helped me breathe the life into  the stories that I wanted to tell.

 Through her constructive guidance I found the voice and tone that  had been missing. She also cut through the clutter to bring each of  the stories into full bloom. I am deeply grateful to have benefited  from Samantha’s astute editorial sensibilities.
