About the Author

SamaraThe time has come…for me to stop writing my bio in the 3rd person. It was fun while it lasted. Welcome! My name is Samara and I’ve curated this cyber corner for 13 years.

Books: In 2005, I launched a letter-writing service, which led to the writing of my first book: For the Love of Letters. That and the book that followed, Note to Self, pay homage to the written word and its healing powers. My third book, Loves Me…Not, is an anecdotal guide to overcoming the dilapidated emotional state of unrequited love.

Future Writing: I have no immediate plans to write another book. Between the ages of 22 and 34 (I’m 38 now), I was working on one self-assigned book project or another. Not all of these projects were published, but I put effort in nonetheless. I have no doubt that I’ll return to writing someday.

Past Writing: My writing has appeared in Marie Claire, The Frisky, and Main Line Today. My website and books have been featured in The Sydney Morning Herald, NPR, and The Daily Love. I have appeared on the lifestyle TV program The Better Show (link no longer available), Philadelphia’s The 10! Show, and Today in New York.

Social Work: I received my master’s degree in social work from Temple University. I am currently working as a mobile therapist at an agency called Central Behavioral Health. I have started working toward my next level of licensure. It should take roughly two years. Come back in fall 2019 to celebrate!
