His critically acclaimed fantasy series ‘The Broken Well Trilogy’ (Hachette, 2009), has reprinted four times, and sold over ten thousand copies. The first book of his 'Strange Threads' duology, 'The Legacy of Lord Regret' was selected as one of the 2012 '50 Books You Can't Put Down' list from 'Get Reading!', a showcase of titles chosen by the Australia Council.
Currently Sam has 16 books to his name across different genres. His most recent, ‘Scharlette Doesn’t Matter and Goes Time Travelling’ (2019), is a comic sci-fi adventure, and marks a foray into self-publishing.
Sam has also written various stage plays, for video games and television, designed a card game, and been a professional stand-up comedian over twenty years.

Sam will be rambling about his experiences publishing in the genres of fantasy, sci-fi and children's books. Having been both traditionally published and recently delved into self-publishing, he is a hybrid author with experiences to share in both arenas.
