Sam Angus

  • 5 stars across 8 books
    Sam Angus was born in Italy, grew up in France and Spain and was educated rather haphazardly in most of these countries, at many different schools. She was asked to leave at least one school. She studied English Literature at Trinity College, Cambridge where she kept a dog until he was discovered being smuggled out of college in a laundry basket. So she was summoned and asked to leave Cambridge too. Unless the dog left, in which case she might stay.

    She taught A level English before spending a decade in the fashion industry and now writes full time.

    She lives between Exmoor and London with improvident numbers of children, dogs and horses.
