About Samantha

  Children’s Book Author & Screenwriter

My Story

Samantha graduated with a BS in Journalism from Florida International University in 2003. She wrote and reported entertainment scripts that were aired on FOX WSVN 7 in Miami, FL and OWL Radio at Florida Atlantic University in Boca. She is passionate about writing and has been writing short stories and poetry since she was a kid, after learning that her favorite grandmother was a poet. Samantha began writing children’s stories in 2004 and has completed a 62,000 middle-grade, fantasy called, RAINBOW CRYSTAL, which was released on May 15, 2018 with CLEAN READS (ASTRAEA PRESS). The sequel, RAINBOW CRYSTAL: THE SPECIAL BOY WHO COULD, released on April 28, 2020. She has also completed a 19,000 humorous, animal-talking, chapter book called MURPHY: THE PHAT CAT. In addition, she co-wrote and finished a screenplay based on a true story about her Italian great-grandparents, which is currently being shopped in Hollywood. Samantha is in the process of adapting RAINBOW CRYSTAL as a feature screenplay.

She is the Creator of RAINBOW CRYSTAL COSMETICS LLC.~ a whimsical make-up lined aimed for young adults, age range 12-25. Her cosmetics will correlate with her RAINBOW CRYSTAL fantasy series and all will be inspired from settings or characters in her books. She is also in the process of becoming a certified, professional master make-up artist.

Mainly, she’s a busy bee being a wife and mother to two children, Bella and Lorenzo. She enjoys reading, watching movies, working out, blogging, spending quality time with good friends, and/or traveling, whenever she can find extra time (usually one of those activities accompanies a cup of coffee or glass of wine), minus the working out part. However, there are always exceptions. Samantha has two bulldogs (Bleu and Buster), one white, fluffy cat named Gracie who is the princess of the castle, two new kitties named Marlo Brando and Willow Nugget, a 150 lb. desert tortoise named Samson, and a bunch of exotic fish, corals, and albino iguanas. She has a lot of love, abundance, and activity around her; she feels blessed — and even sometimes stressed — every day for it all.
