On the blog…


Samantha Parks is the pen name of Samantha Gale, an author, blogger and business owner living in Bournemouth, UK. Sam chose the name Parks for her writing after her grandmother Velma Hobbs nee Parks, who passed away in 2010.

Sam's debut novel The Summerhouse in Santorini will be published on the 26th of July 2019 by HarperImpulse, a division of HarperCollins UK, first as an e-book with a paperback-on-demand available soon after. The e-book will also be available in the US.

Sam was born in North Carolina and moved to the UK for grad school in 2015. After finishing her course, she moved to Bournemouth with her partner Alex, where they now live. Sam runs the business Regale Media, a marketing content and strategy provider for small business owners and entrepreneurs.

Here, Sam blogs about what she's reading and writing, her horrible attempts at baking, and her adventures in the world. Views expressed here are her own and do not reflect those of HarperCollins, Regale Media or anyone else. They're just her own crazy notions and probably shouldn't be taken too seriously.
