In attempt to meet deadlines and get more books written, I have purposefully made myself difficult to reach. It’s nothing personal — y’all know I love you. As such, I have an assistant who answers all emails, and she summarizes all messages for me once a week.

So if you want to ask a question or just want to let me know something, then go ahead and send your message to susan [at] You’ll hear back from Sam soon!

For other types of requests (subsidiary rights, events, etc.), see the below contact addresses. And of course, never dismiss the power of handwritten snail mail. Nothing makes me happier. ❤️
