Samantha Mills

Samantha Mills lives in Southern California, in a house on a hill that is hopefully not a haunted hill house. She has a B.A. in Pre- and Early Modern Literature, and a Master’s in Library and Information Science. What a surprise: literature and libraries!

As an archivist, she worked primarily with local history collections. We’re talking diaries! We’re talking dramatic, confessional letters! We’re talking everything from business records to coroner’s inquests to oral histories to newspapers and court cases and bits of hair tucked into scrapbooks–everybody stop it right now, nobody wants to open an old book and find your hair in it!

When Sam isn’t writing or taking care of children, she’s watching B-movies, binding books, and sewing her own dorky costumes for comic conventions. Her short fiction has appeared in Uncanny Magazine, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Strange Horizons, Escape Pod, and others. She blogs about life, reading, writing, and pop culture at and makes jokes on Twitter @samtasticbooks.
