Samantha Swain is a 25-year-old creative writer and illustrator living in Spokane with her spouse and their adorable cat. She earned her BS in Biochemistry from the University of Puget Sound and her MS in Immunology from the University of California, Davis, but recently left the world of science to focus on her health. She is now pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing at Eastern Washington University.
Samantha is currently at work on an adult fantasy series titled Owning God and a children's book titled Sam's Joints Are Red. Her poetry and short stories have been previously published in American River Review, Literally Stories, and The Piker Press.
Samantha Swain has a minor in Studio Art from the University of Puget Sound and is self-taught on digital platforms. Her strong background in science coupled with her ability to produce precise, realistic drawings and clean, attractive diagrams make her ideal for illustrating scientific publications and textbooks. However, she is open to taking any kinds of commissions and would love to do book covers and children's books.
