Sam’s career has taken her from management consultant and travel business owner, to sommelier, wine columnist and more recently, food writer.
Following the premature death of her youngest brother, who suffered from type 1 diabetes, she decided to overhaul her diet in the interests of living a longer and healthier life. She wrote about the process in her book THE HAPPY EATER, 4 WEEKS TO A BETTER RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD, which was self-published in 2014.
Sam, 46, now lives in Bali with her husband and two children. Eating for health is intrinsic to the Balinese way of life and this beautiful island has provided endless food inspiration as well as proving a fertile ground for recipe hunting.
Sam’s most recent book, THE MIDLIFE KITCHEN: HEALTH-BOOSTING RECIPES FOR MIDLIFE & BEYOND ( Mitchell Beazley) was published in May 2017.
