WHO? Who is Samantha March?
Someone who can’t sit still! I am always on the go, working at my laptop, or have my nose in a book. Even when I try to sleep my thoughts keep racing about what I need to do, what I should have done, and what my to-do list looks like for the following day. I work full-time at a hospital, and then also run the blog ChickLitPlus.com, the business CLP Blog Tours, am the owner of Marching Ink, an author, and a freelance editor. And I’m planning my wedding!
WHAT? What do you enjoy doing other than writing in your spare time?
Well, you might gather that I don’t have a whole lot of spare time! But I do enjoy working out, Pilates and Yoga are my favorite, and then just simply spending time with friends and my fiancé!
WHEN? When did you know you wanted to be a writer?
I think I’ve known since I was probably nine years old. I had a true obsession with reading any and everything, and started creating my own spinoff stories from series such as The Baby-Sitters Club – though I don’t think Ann M. Martin needed to worry!
WHERE? Where do you write?
I stick to my office. And I tend to write in the mornings, as my afternoons get hectic and jam-packed with the pressure of completing my to-do list. I also minimize all distractions – no TV, I typically shut my phone off, and no other programs (email, Facebook) are open to help me procrastinate.
WHY? Why do you write?
It’s something that I truly enjoy. I don’t ever feel like I’m being forced to do it, that I have to fake my way into doing something I don’t love. It just feels right, and I would love to be able to give a reader excitement from my books like other books have done for me.

College junior Alex Abrams scores her dream job at the ripe age of twenty – manager to a successful salon and spa. Thrilled to finally have a real adult job, Alex enthusiastically jumps into the world of schedules, conference calls, and getting a massage when interviewing prospective employees. What she doesn’t expect are the very grown-up issues that comes with a demanding boss. Kevin Dohlman quickly becomes Alex’s worse nightmare – covering up his affairs, dealing with his enormous ego, and trying to protect her female staff from him becomes a full-time job in its own right. Alex has also befriended Kevin’s wife and co-owner, Dani, and is trying to keep Kevin’s secrets hidden from her. The situation only worsens when Kevin starts paying Alex off to make sure she keeps her insider knowledge to herself.
While struggling to keep her wits and stay happy with her new grown-up job, Alex is juggling college courses, a new love interest, and keeping up with her close group of girlfriends. When her roommate and best friend Lila gets offered an opportunity to move to Los Angeles and sign with an agent, Alex realizes her life truly is changing, and everyone around her – including herself –– is growing up. Knowing she is faced with some hard decisions ahead, Alex struggles with keeping her job at Blissful. But does she really want to throw away what she dreamed of as a career – or will the secret-keeping for Kevin become too much to handle? The Green Ticket is a story about morals versus money, and how one young woman navigates the shaky line between the two.
