Samantha Young's headshot

I'm a New York Times and international bestselling author of over 35 titles in young adult and adult fiction. My books have been published in 30 countries so far. Considered a hybrid author - self-published as well as traditionally published - I've provided keynote speeches at several publishing events in the UK and US regarding my journey through self-publishing to traditional publishing.

Moreover, I've participated in several panel events at writer conferences of various subjects (self-publishing, writing process, writing YA and writing adult romance), as well as Q&As in the UK, US, Germany, Croatia, and Poland. I've also been invited to a number of local schools to talk to the pupils about creative writing.
