Meet the Author: Samantha Mabry

Samantha MabrySamantha Mabry was born four days before the death of John Lennon. She grew up in Texas, playing bass guitar along to records in her bedroom after school, writing fan letters to rock stars, doodling song lyrics into notebooks, and reading big, big books. Currently, she teaches English at a community college in Dallas. She hopes one day to live in the desert.

Samantha’s debut YA novel, A FIERCE AND SUBTLE POISON  (Algonquin Young Readers, March 2016), is a re-imagining of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s story, Rappaccini’s Daughter, set in modern-day San Juan, Puerto Rico. It involves hurricanes, a dead nun, a boy who believes in curses, and a girl who is full of poison.
