About the Author
Samara O’Shea entered mortality on September 22, 1979. Since then, she has worked at several magazines and launched the letter-writing service you see before you. She has written two books paying homage to the written word and its healing powers: For the Love of Letters and Note to Self. She is working on her third book entitled Loves Me…Not:
How to Survive (and Thrive!) in the Face of Unrequited Love due out February 2014.
Samara’s writing has also appeared in Marie Claire, The Frisky, and Main Line Today. Her website and books have been featured in NPR, Real Simple, and Philadelphia . The New York Times once caught Samara matching the curtains AND throw pillows at a party and decided to snap a picture.
Samara has appeared on NPR’s The Kojo Nambdi Show and WPR’s The Veronica Rueckert Show. She still has the first love letter she ever received, and she diligently drinks two cups of green and/or white tea every day.
