Hello, my name is Samantha Ham and I have been a writer since I was 11 years old. So for about 17-18 years I have been writing. But only for the last 7 or so would I really say my writing deserved to be out there. I have been on WdC before, but that journey ended rather- fruitlessly. I was raised in South Mississippi up until we lost everything in Hurricane Katrina. I was born in Germany as my dad was in the military. I lost my mom when I was 21 years old, going on 22. She was 48. It was very sudden and unexpected. She tends to show up in a lot of my writing. I am married to a wonderful man with whom I hope to have children with soon.
