Meet Sam Reeves
In 1974, when I was 3, my family moved from Kansas City to the Ozarks of southern Missouri. Next to the Mark Twain National Forest sat our 100-acre farm, where grew maples, strawberries, and snakes. (The snakes outnumbered the other two by about seventeen to one.)
Growing up, I occasionally was seen carrying my pet chicken under my arm because all chickens love tricycle rides. When I was 15, my family moved to a small mining town in Oklahoma. I have lived in the general area since.
I met my wife at Wal-Mart. She told me my watch was ugly. I proposed to her a week later.
After college, I worked 6 years for a Native American casino as both their IT manager and director of marketing. (Yes, simultaneously.) For a couple of years after that, I returned to college, but this time instead of sitting in class, I sat at the end of a long hallway to write programs and analyze systems.
I am working on my first novel – a horror story with a touch of sci-fi.
Sam’s passion for writing comes across in his interview. He has been writing on and off over the years and is hoping to have his first novel released within the next 12 months.
In an unusual twist, it was his own Mother’s love of horror stories which has inspired Sam to write and has drawn him towards this genre. He professes a love of sci-fi and robots, so it will be interesting to see what he comes up with for his first novel. His uncle also supplied sci-fi books to teenage Sam and his love of Sci-fi was born.
Sam is keen on graphic design and did the cover for Yancy Caruther’s novel you can see here.
Sam has a cool idea of writing a minimum amount of words each day and slowly increasing it to a desired target. It sounds like a mental fitness plan. I think with his passion and enthusiasm, he’ll be someone to watch out for in the future.
