Sam Blake is a pseudonym for Vanessa Fox O’Loughlin, who is originally from St. Albans in Hertfordshire but has lived at the foot of the Wicklow Mountains in Ireland for slightly more years than she lived in the UK. Married to a retired member of An Garda Siochana she has two children, numerous cats and is in charge of her eldest child's ant farm while they are studying Aerospace Engineering in Swansea University. She runs the world’s only national writing resources website (guess!) as well as a publishing consultancy – she is Ireland’s leading literary scout. She has to hide to get any writing done, but it’s her passion.
Vanessa has been writing fiction since her husband set sail across the Atlantic for eight weeks and she had an idea for a book.
