That Author Girl – A Blog

I write about my mystical, majestical writer life, cats, and other shenanigans as a young adult writer.

  • Hey.

    November 28, 2019 by

    Welcome to the blog! Hey. I’m Sam. (If you already know me, feel free to skip this part. I’m catching up everyone else). I write, eat cheese, chill with my cats, and complain about the Florida heat. I used to be a manager in retail and now I’m paid to write words in the correct… Read more

  • Figure Skating 101: Grace

    May 7, 2021 by

    For about 10 years, I was a competitive figure skater. Before you jump to visions of graceful girls flying into intricate, back-breaking spins, this was more like it: Even as I inched my way up through the levels, grace eluded me. However, what I lacked in beauty, I made up with solid jumps and speed,… Read more

I was fortunate… Read more

  • When Interviews Aren’t Stressful Enough…

    March 11, 2020 by

    As a writer, I tend to be a little (very) introverted. I also like to (LOVE TO) overthink. So, put all of that together, it’s pretty obvious that stressful situations such as – oh, let’s say job interviews – aren’t my cup of tea (actually, I don’t know anyone who likes them. Does anyone?). With… Read more

  • You Know You’re “Old” When…

    February 19, 2020 by

    Millennials don’t like the thought of truly growing up. I mean, Neverland sounds rad, right? Freedom of an adult, responsibilities of a kid? Sign me right up. Unless someone out there has any pixie dust, we have to embrace the fact that we need to figure out how to “adult” – without losing our minds.… Read more
