Samantha King


Samantha King writes psychological suspense novels and lives in west London with her husband and two young children.

As an English graduate and lifelong bookworm, becoming an author was always Samantha’s dream. But this passion for storytelling led her first to a career in publishing, managing a commercial fiction imprint for a global publisher. After fifteen years, she abandoned office life in favour of working from home as a freelance editor for various publishers and literary agents.

Samantha has always loved books that explore the hidden depths of the heart and mind, and she decided to satisfy her growing interest in human psychology by qualifying as a psychotherapist. This deepened her fascination with the hopes and fears that make people tick, which again reawakened her writing ambitions. Working around – and inspired by – a busy family life, she finally sat down and wrote her debut novel and is still recovering from the excitement that it was immediately snapped up.

THE CHOICE will be published by Piatkus as their superlead for 2017, with the hardback available in April and the paperback the following year.

Samantha writes in a hut at the end of her garden, with a very affectionate Cavachon dog for company, but she keeps in touch with the world through Facebook and Twitter (please see ‘channels’ tab).
