Samantha Fountain - Literary Intern
Samantha Fountain wears a few hats in the literary world. An unquenchable passion burns within her at the mere thought or mention of books. With eight years experience in the industry from writing for various print, online media, and her own manuscripts, to creating/hosting successful online events that connect writers with freelance editors, literary agents, and publishing houses. Samantha is now ready to fulfill the next step in her literary dreams, working her way to the title of AGENT.
Samantha's most recent event is a Twitter sensation and can be found under #p2p16. The book industry is where she feels at home.
Samantha’s full time job is most enjoyable. She spends her days with her five-year-old, Wallace. She LOVES coffee, or perhaps it's an addiction. Singing is a daily thing in her household. She admits her voice is nothing to write home about. Her son is the only one that joins in these musicals.
Nap and bedtime are Samantha’s allotted time to write, edit, and help in making other writers' dreams come true.
Samantha is drawn to all young adult titles, although she has a particular love for dark, yet beautiful stories with unique voice (The Fault in Our Stars, The Lovely Bones, If I Stay). She’s a fan of historical fiction in both young adult and adult (Water for Elephants, Cold Mountain, The Book Thief, All the Light We Cannot See). For adult fiction, she loves those with strong mystery, thriller, and drama undertones (Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, Dare Me).
