About

Five Minutes with Samantha Shannon…

Nickname: Sam. My close friends call me Sammy.
Family: I’m married to my high school sweetheart Steve and we have a beautiful baby son together named Tom. I feel very lucky.
Do you have any pets?  I have two greyhounds called Ben and Jerry (she’s a girl). They are former racing hounds that we adopted through the Greyhound Adoption Program. They love to sleep, eat and sleep some more. I think they’re the bomb.
What is your favourite season?  Summer! Bikinis, cold beers, sunscreen, backyard BBQs, blue skies, and sundresses – I love it all!  I feel like I spend 9 months of the year craving for summer.
What is your favourite pastime?  I’m not ashamed to say that I am love watching TV. I love discovering new TV series and then binge watching every season. I also love to read and always make sure my Kindle is fully loaded and there’s a magazine in the house.
If you won $10,000, what would you spend it on?  My husband and I are addicted to travelling, so we would probably spend it on a lovely holiday somewhere. We can’t wait to take our son on his first trip overseas.
