Samantha Stemler is an independent author, blogger and promotional writer living in Lansing, Michigan.  Her first novel, a teen romance entitled That Freak Kid, was written during and inspired by her own high school experience.  The novel was refined and published two years later in 2011, and continues to inspire and captivate young readers.  Samantha’s second novel began shortly after That Freak Kid was published, while obtaining a degree in Business Management at Michigan State University.  The King of the Sun began as a cathartic outlet and grew into a complex and heartfelt psychological fiction journey.  Publishing for The King of the Sun was made possible by donations through the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign in November of 2013, where the first copies were released to generous patrons.  Published in December of 2013, proceeds of The King of the Sun now go to support the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the largest grassroots mental health organization in U.S.  Samantha also writes for several commercial and non-profit organizations in Michigan and hosts a writing blog.  She is currently working on a young adult fantasy series entitled The Soldier Sons, with a prospective release date in March.   For questions or comments, please contact Samantha via Email: samstemler@gmail.com Facebook: Facebook.com/S.Stemler Facebook Fan Page: facebook.com/pages/That-Freak-Kid/122782194480360 Twitter: @samstemler Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/ GoodReads: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/6976339.Samantha_Stemler Blog: samstemler.blogspot.com Websites: www.thatfreakkid.webs.com www.thekingofthesun.webs.com
