Hi, I'm Samuel

I was born in Cape Canaveral, Florida, and I grew up a mile from the gates of Kennedy Space Center. My grandmother built space shuttles, my father designed scientific equipment that flew on them, and I watched the launches from my rattling front porch, dreaming of the stars.

I recently spent three years traveling across our little blue-green marble in space, finding inspiration for my books in places like Ha Long Bay in Vietnam and the ice caves of Iceland.

My best-selling novel Mission One launched my career as a science fiction writer, and now I spend my time crafting new universes for you to explore.
