This Week meet Young Adults Fiction Writer, Story Teller and upcoming Author and high spirited Creative, Samantha Eaton. Beyond Writing, she is a cat lover, a coffee aficionado and yes an amateur photographer too! Well, I know you will thoroughly love her in this feature… be inspired!
=> My name is Samantha Eaton and I’m an aspiring author based out of Boston MA. I’ve been writing on and off for as long as I can remember – creating stories, poetry, and even songs during high school – but I’ve recently started getting serious about my work in hopes of getting published.
I’m currently working on a Young Adult Science Fiction trilogy about a girl who is kidnapped and brought to an island that is way better than the depressed economy she’s used to. As she spends more time trying to figure out where she is and how to get home to the people she loves, she starts to realize that what she thinks is reality might be a complete illusion.
I write YA fiction because I was a teenager once and it was awful. But young adults are the people who will change the world in five, ten, twenty years and they struggle with the same things we as adults do like finding their identity, figuring out what matters most to them, and choosing the right side to fight for. We need to encourage these kids not to worry about fitting in with everyone else and embrace their inner uniqueness.
Every day I learn something new about what it means to be creative, and that’s half the fun! I think that’s the point of Creative Mondays – to showcase people of different styles and backgrounds and spread the creativity all around.
When I’m not writing, I’m an amateur photographer who can’t decide what type of photography to do, a cat enthusiast who isn’t allowed to have pets in my apartment, a punk rocker who doesn’t know how to dress like one, or a wanderer who wants to travel the world in search of the best cup of coffee.
So that’s me in a nutshell. Thank you for watching, and hopefully you’ll see my work in your local bookstores or something soon.
