Sam Garvey


Sam can usually be found with a giant stack of books slung over her back and several nautical tons of ink splashed over her front. She loves stories of all kinds, illustrated, animated, or otherwise, but has a special place in her heart for children’s books and young adult novels. Since graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, she has cultivated this love, creating freelance illustrations, writing novels, and working both editorial and design jobs in the publishing industry.
