UK Meet: Sam Evans

Starting from June 1, 2015, I will daily feature authors attending the three conventions I will join, Euro Pride in Munich (July), UK Meet in Bristol (September) and GRL in San Diego (October).

For the UK Meet in Bristol, September 11-13, 2015, today author is Sam Evans: Sam Evans lives in the North West of England in a town semi famous for its rugby. By day she works for mental health services in Manchester. By night she put the words in her head onto paper but only if a shiny computer game doesn’t distract her first.

Having found her way to the genre through a pack of wolf shifters, she was pleasantly surprised when the fictional characters her head fit into place when only men were involved. Now she can’t shut them up.

Sam is thankful for a boyfriend who makes her cups of tea and who doesn’t mind that she isn’t a domestic goddess.

Her stories are set in and around Manchester, with the odd excursion to the British coastline (or Cyprus for the weather).

Ten authors - in thirteen stories - explore the experiences of GLBTQI people during World War I. In what ways were their lives the same as or different from those of other people? A London pub, an English village, a shell-hole on the Front, the outskirts of Thai Nguyen city, a ship in heavy weather off Zeebrugge, a civilian internment camp … Loves and griefs that must remain unspoken, unexpected freedoms, the tensions between individuality and duty, and every now and then the relief of recognition. You’ll find both heartaches and joys in this astonishing range of thought-provoking stories.
