Samantha Warren is a speculative fiction author who spends her days immersed in
dragons, spaceships, and vampires.
In the name of research, she enlisted the help of her pet dragon Anethesis and together they built a Noah’s Ark-like space ship. Three trips through a hole in the time-space continuum allowed the pair to explore the universe decades into the past and eons into the future. They discovered how life would be without Earth and were forced to run from alien law enforcement when their ship was deemed unspaceworthy. In the long run, the constant demands of space travel and repairs cut into Samantha’s sock fetish fund, so she was forced to sell her ark for half-price to a slimy creature that made Jabba the Hutt look like Brad Pitt.
After her years of traveling, she returned to her roots. She milks cows for fun and collects zombie gnomes when she’s not writing fantasy, science fiction, or horror. Her goal in life is to eat a Beef Wellington cooked by Gordon Ramsay. Anethesis remains by her side, sleeping away the day and hunting evil cat-eating coyotes by night.
