About the Author

Hello, writer!

Welcome to my sweet little blog!

I write under the name Samantha R. Glas, but I better go by Sam. I’m a Christ-follower, classics-reader, coffee-drinker, and writer of fantasy and historical fiction. I’m from Memphis, so I have an inherit southern flair and love for barbecue. I spend my days reading, laughing, and trying to delight the Lord in everything I do. tl;rd, I’m addicted to Jesus and sunshine.

She is clothed in strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.

Psalms 31:25

Clearly, I post about writing. All things writing! Tips, ideas, books, advice, etc. But inspiring you to be your very best self is my jam.

As of 2015, I have a 100-page YA fantasy novella available on Amazon, entitled The Undiscovered Tribe, and my latest project is my eagerly-anticipated historical fiction novel, The Girl Who Frosts the Cakes! You’ll find that I post about my progress on the latter quite often. Find out more about my books below!

Inspiration of the Month

January 2018: There’s always a reason to celebrate! Whether you finished your long-time project, overcame a fear, or made a grilled cheese without burning the edges – everything deserves to be celebrated. Life is too short to not relish in your accomplishments!

February 2018: Take some time to love your life today. Love your hobbies, your daily routine, the way your clothes fit just right. Love what you eat, what you have, and everyone around you. You were given this day for a reason! Enjoy it for its beauty!

March 2018: Strive for progress, not perfection. Every day you grow a little closer to your end goal. That one measly scene you wrote last weekend? You’re one scene closer to your “the end”! Now go and finish that project, one step at a time.
