The word most often used to describe Sam's writing is fun. Reviewers compare his writing style to Jasper Fforde, with an obvious Monty Python influence. As a leader of the region’s year-round writing group, he runs an editing accountability group, organizes weekly “Shut Your Trap & Write” sessions (which have gone virtual during the pandemic), provides critiques to fellow writers, and has presented workshops on the writer’s voice, editing, humor, time management, and the use of naps to find your eureka moment.
